Rauben's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase farm inputs.
Rauben is a male Ugandan aged 57 years. He is from Maisuka, Kibaale district. He is a single parent of four children who are all school-going. He is a very hardworking prominent commercial farmer known in his area for growing mostly bananas, coffee and vanilla. He has done this for the past 14 years. He is leading a fairly comfortable life, all due to agriculture. His future plan is to grow more vanilla because of its lucrative nature. He is a fourth time borrower with UGAFODE, and has taken a credit facility to buy farm inputs and also boost other agriculture related activities to boost crop productivity. His biggest setbacks in this business are poor weather and price fluctuations.
