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

A loan helped to buy land from her neighbor to grow more coffee and increase her coffee production.

Aidah's story

Aidah is married with four school-going children. She grows coffee as her main source of income. This is how she has managed to help her husband with some of the family's expenses, like school fees.

She wants to increase her coffee production, but she has been limited by her farming land being small. She has therefore applied for a loan of 5,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to buy land from her neighbor to plant more coffee and increase her coffee production.

Aidah is hopeful that her income will increase, thus enabling her to educate all her children up to university. She appreciates the support.
