A loan helped to purchase organic manure.

Paul's story

Paul is a farmer, married with six children, and lives in a rural area of Kyomukama village on the outskirts of Kagadi town with the family.

He is a hardworking man and a self-employed man who deals in growing both perennial crops and annual crops like sugarcane, cocoa, coffee, cassava, maize, bananas and beans on a large scale, which has enabled him to get school fees for his children.

He has acquired a loan of 3,500,000 UGX to buy organic manure for his banana plantation.

His future plan is to grow sugarcane and cocoa on a large scale. He hopes to take another loan for investing in agriculture.
