Edward's story

Edward is a Ugandan aged 42 years. He is from Ziranduru in Kagadi District. He is married and has 7 school going children.

Edward is a very hardworking and focused commercial farmer, growing mostly bananas and maize, an activity he has done for the past 8 years. This has fostered his general well being.

His business faces challenges of unfavorable weather and price fluctuations, which affect crop productivity and eventually his business income. He is a third time borrower with UGAFODE and has borrowed a loan to buy farm inputs and pay wages.
