A loan of $2,375 helped a member to purchase land to expand his pineapple farm.


Kagaramira Central Twimukye Group's story

K. Francis, 35, started his pineapple farming business on a small scale in Kagaramira-Ibanda three years ago. At the beginning, he was selling principally bananas. He made a decision to diversify months later-choosing to grow and sell pineapples.

The hard working father of three says whilst he was able to make significant ends meet with his modest earnings, he was having shortfalls in the provision of overall welfare to his family and close relatives. Weekly he says this business generates him 60,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) as profit. He says with this loan he is going to purchase more land to expand his pineapple farm.
