Alex's story

Alex is a married man residing in Kamwenge Uganda. He deals in poultry and pigs to earn a living as his main economic activity. He also grows crops like bananas and coffee to supplement his income and he uses the waste from the pigs and poultry as manure. He has been in the farming business for the last 3 years and he says the business is growing at a very high speed due to the high demand for pig and poultry products. As a farmer he is challenged by pests and disease along with the high fluctuating prices for animal and bird feed. He is requesting a loan to buy more feed for his pigs and chickens to feed on.
