Alexander's story

Alexander is married with schooling children, and he is fully in charge of paying their school fees and providing other basic needs. He is a farmer and produce trader.

Alexander wants a loan of 1,500,000 UGX for his farming project: a coffee plantation. He will buy organic fertilizers and also buy fast-growing seedlings that will bring income within a short time. This will help to improve his family’s living standards by seeing that all his children get a quality education.

Alexander expressed his sincere gratitude and appreciation for this great support that will improve his business.
