Elivaida's story

Elivaida is a mother living in Ntungamo.

Elivaida is a farmer, growing mainly bananas. With the income she earns, she helps her husband to cover the family expenses, such as school fees.

Elivaida requested a loan of UGX 3,000,000 to buy mulch for her banana plantation. This will boost crop production, thus increasing her yields in quantity and quality. A good yield brings in good return, which will improve her family's living standards.

Elivaida appreciates the lenders for their support, which will improve her farming business.
