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

A loan helped to hire labor and buy mulch to expand his banana plantation and increase production.

Hakimu's story

Hakimu is married with 4 children. He is applying for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to expand his banana plantation by hiring labor and buying mulch. His plantation is located in Mpigi.

Hakimu has been in this agricultural venture for the last 7 years. He says it’s a stable source of income because it’s the staple food in the area. His biggest challenges are poor climatic conditions and pests. To earn extra income, he is also a coffee trader.

Being a hard worker, Hakimu believes he can increase his sales if granted the loan. He would like the lenders to know that he is a committed person.
