Mwesigwa's story

Mwesigwa is a male Ugandan aged 58 years. He is from Isongero LC1, Mugarama s/c, Kibaale district. He is married and has eight children, four of whom are school going. He is a very hard-working agribusiness man dealing in all seasonal crops available. The person in the far background of the photo is his wife, whom he manages the business with.

He has done this for six years. This business has fostered the general well being of the client. Mwesigwa also does commercial farming.

His future plan is to buy more land for expansion of his farming enterprise so that he can have more for sale. Mwesigwa is a second-time borrower with UGAFODE and has taken a credit facility of 5 million UGX to buy more produce and also pay wages. His business faces a challenge of unfavorable weather and price fluctuations which affects his business incomes.
