A loan of $425 helps to buy pesticides and pay labor to boost production and sales to earn more income.


William's story

Meet William, aged 49, a resident of Bwambara, Rukungiri. He is married with one wife and two children.

He is a very hard working man, and is the sole provider of his family. He is a farmer who produces large quantities of coffee every season. This has helped him to provide for his family expenses, and also pay school fees to keep his children in school for a better future.

He has approached UGAFODE for a loan to buy pesticides and pay labor, so that he can improve his coffee plantation to boost production and increase sales.

He also grows tomatoes and wants to use part of the money to buy pesticides to spray the tomato garden. This way he can achieve a good harvest, which will return him high incomes after sales.

He is grateful to Kiva for the support rendered to him
