but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy manure and sacks of Irish potatoes to sell.

Alice's story

Alice Is a resident of Rakai central in Rakai district. She is a single mother with only one young boy. She is 27 years old and dealing in banana production and agro-business, mostly buying and selling Irish potatoes. She normally buys from the locals at a cheaper price and transports them directly to Kampala, where the demand is high, and automatically this attracts a higher price, hence earning some reasonable profits which made her business to flourish for this long.

She is requesting a loan to buy manure for her plantation and buy some sacks of Irish potatoes so she can continue earning a living.
