Stephen's story

Stephen is married with children, 3 of which are still attending school. He is a farmer who grows coffee, bananas, and beans as his major source of income.

Stephen has been in his business for the last 30 years and has been using his own capital. He later decided to join UGAFODE for financial support to buy farm inputs and increase his production to meet the available market.

Stephen applied for a loan of 3,500,000 to buy fertilizers and mulching materials for his farm to increase his output and serve a wider market and make more income and meet all his family needs, especially school fees.

He thanks the lenders for their financial support that will improve his farming business.
