Lemigio's story

Lemigio is one of the modern farmers of passion fruits in Rushozi, Rubaya in Mbarara. He has run this same project for more than five years and it is from agriculture that he has been able to pay school fees for his children and also purchase more land for agriculture.

He currently has approximately 3 acres of passion fruit at different stages of production to be able to maintain a steady supply of the fruit to his customers. To be able to manage the steady supply of water flow, he wants to purchase a water pump to pump water for irrigation during the dry season.

He has hopes to have a minimum of 5 acres of passion fruits and also be able to supply at least 50 bags of passion fruits per month.

Lemigio is grateful for your continuous support.
