Edward's story

Edward is married, 42 years old, and has seven children who are 22, 20, 18,16,14,12 and ten years old. He lives in a rural setting with his family and he is a farmer who deals in coffee farming. He started the farming business in 1986, and he works six days in a week, eight hours each day. He started this business in order to earn money to have a higher standard of living since he did not go to school. He has acquired this loan in order to complete construction of his home so that his children can have decent accommodations. His customers are traders from the surrounding areas and he hopes to be the leading supplier of coffee in his area, but he still faces the challenge of limited capital and unpredictable weather changes. He describes himself as a hardworking and honest man. He appreciates UGAFODE Micro finance services.
