Gerald's story

Gerald is married with four children who attend school.

He owns a maize milling machine in the outskirts of Lyantonde as his main source of income. In addition to earning income, he is transforming lives of farmers through providing them a ready market, and also offering employment opportunities to the locals.

Since school is resuming soon, Gerald has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to buy more maize from local farmers for milling, to meet the demand for posho that comes with the schooling season. He is optimistic that his income will improve his family's standard of living, and also keep his children in school.

Gerald appreciates his lenders for their financial support, which will transform him and his family economically.
