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

A loan helped to buy agricultural inputs for his banana plantation to increase yields and his revenue.

Edson's story

Edson is married with five children; all attend school. He is a farmer who grows bananas as his main source of income.

Edson is a proud farmer because farming has sustained his family for years. He has applied for a loan of 4,000,000 UGX to buy agricultural inputs like fertilizers and mulching material to increase his production and make more profits from the sale of bananas.

Edson is positive that the increase in his income will enable him to educate his children up to college, as well as improve his family's livelihood.

He appreciates the support that will improve his farming business.
