A loan of $2,225 helped a member to purchase high value manure and fertilizers for his plantation so that it can regain its fertility.

Rwamunyari Kwetungura Grp-Ibanda Group's story

It is now fifteen years since A. Charles started his farming business in Rwamunyari Cell, Ibanda, in Western Uganda. With this as his only means of livelihood, he has managed to make ends meet although with some long seasonal income fluctuations and high labor-cost challenges.

With hard work, this married and happy-go-lucky father of two children has kept his business growing. In a week, he makes 30,000 Ugandan shillings out of selling mostly bananas. His business plan of action for the future is to be able to sell more bananas out of his farm to an increasingly expanding market.

With this loan, Charles plans to purchase manure and fertilizer for his plantation.
