A loan of $2,025 helped a member to purchase manure for his gardens.


Nakalasa Development Group-Lugazi's story

32-year-old Steven O. is happily married and has one child. He belongs to the Nakalasa Development Group—Lugazi. For the last twelve years Steven has been involved in commercial agriculture. Before this he was a subsistence farmer who only grew crops for his family’s consumption. Steven also gets modest profits from his small shop.


Steven describes his clientele as general in scope, meaning he sells to different classes of people. His business generates 100,000 UGX for him monthly. With this loan he wants to purchase manure for his gardens. This, he says, will help improve his crops, thus allowing him to sell his improved yields at a higher competitive market rate.
