A loan helped to buy fertilizers for her banana plantation to improve yields.


Janat's story

Janat is a resident of Sembabule district. She is a widow with six children.

She is entirely an agriculturalist growing bananas, which contributes the biggest portion of her income. She also carries out livestock farming, which brings in supplementary income.

With the money she gets from farming, she has been able to educate her four biological children and other dependents to the advanced level.

Janat has always wanted to apply improved methods of farming, but insufficient working capital has been a major constraint.

She has, therefore, applied for a loan of 1,500,000 UGX from UGAFODE to buy organic fertilizers for her banana plantation. She is hopeful that her farm yields will improve in quality and quantity, thus bringing in more returns.

Janat is grateful for the financial support that will improve her farming and also transform her economically.
