Nelson's story

Nelson is 36 years old, a resident of Rwakacucu, Rwasinga, Rakai District and married with four children. Two are in school.

He does farming where he grows bananas. For additional income he operates a bar, which he started in 2010 with the aim of improving on his daily income.

He requests a loan of 1,500,000 UGX to buy manure and pay some workers wages to work in the banana plantation.

He is referred to as a hardworking person. He hopes this will help improve his yield.
