A loan of $2,600 helped a member to purchase cows for fattening on the farm.

Bwizi Fraternity Group, Kyenjojo's story

A determined and hard-working M. Lawrence is married with 5 children and is excited about his agriculture businesses in Bwizi, Kyenjojo. He belongs to Bwizi Fraternity group.

He owns a banana plantation and other agricultural farms that include cattle grazing, beans and maize growing, that all generate income for the family. This has seen him earn 160,000 Ugandan shillings a month.

His main drawback has been a lack of funding to purchase more cows for the farm for fattening and manure and mulches for the other agricultural plantations, which has reduced his production and sales revenue. Therefore, this loan will help him improve his yields in terms of agro produce, thus enabling him to meet the customers’ high demand and also increasing his sales revenue, hence making him more able to meet his family's requirements in terms of tuition fees for the children’s needs and live a more self sustaining life.
