A loan of $850 helped to rent land for growing tea.


George's story

George, 38 years old, is a married man with three children. They live in his own semi-permanent house in Fort Portal, Uganda, with a family goal of building a permanent residence.

George is into growing tea and he hires land to do so. He started as one of the workers on an estate but later decided to become an outgrower. [Synonymous with contract farming, the outgrower system provides for private and public firms to purchase the harvests of individual farmers.]

George is requesting a loan to hire land for growing tea.
