Charles's story

Charles is married with four children. He is a farmer who specializes in rice growing in his region, a business which has been his main source of income for over 5 years.

Charles is a proud farmer because, apart from earning income, he is transforming lives in his community through providing jobs for the youth. With the money he gets, he provides the family with the basic necessities, as well as educating his children.

In a bid to improve his farming, Charles has applied for a loan of 1,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to buy pesticides for his farm. He is hopeful that the quality and quantity of his farm yields will improve, which will attract competitive prices, thus bringing in more income.

Charles appreciates the lenders for the support that will improve his farming and also transform him financially. However, the unpredictable price fluctuations are a challenge to him.
