Rodgers's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy pesticides and fertilizers.

Rodgers's story

Rodgers is married with seven children. He is a farmer in the town of Mpigi. Farming is his only source of income. He works on his farm daily since he is the sole support for his family.

His farm has been attacked by caterpillars that are eating up the tomatoes. He has incurred a lot of losses, leaving him with less income to buy pesticides and fertilizers. He has sought a loan to buy pesticides to spray the caterpillars and to apply fertilizers to the farm to prepare for next season's planting.

He believes with this done, his business will be revived and he can minimize losses. Thank you, funders.
