Mukulu's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase high-quality seeds and good fertilizers that she will use to improve crop production.

Mukulu's story

Mukulu (69-year-old mom of 7) is a cheerful and enthusiastic person who enjoys and appreciates her life and having a family. She works hard each day and puts all her efforts into her farming business. She is a small-scale farmer from Matuu, a rural town known for dairy farming.

For the past few years, Mukulu has been actively involved in mixed farming. Her primary sources of income have been milk and maize. She sells her crop produce to the nearby market and also to neighbors. She has been making positive strides.

Although she practices crop and animal farming, she has not been making good profits because of poor farming inputs. That is why she is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers to improve her crop farm. Through this loan, she will be able to purchase high-quality seeds and good fertilizer that she will use to improve crop production. Modern farming requires the use of modern techniques, and high-quality seeds will assure her of a bumper harvest and increased profits. Her dream is to support her family.

Mukulu hopes for your understanding and help. Make a $25 loan or more, and push Mukulu’s dream closer to reality. She's very thankful in advance.
