Tugirubukire B / Rbv Group's story

Wellars is a member of the TUGIRUBUKIRE B / Rbv group. He is 27 years old, married, and works as a potato farmer. Besides a one-year-old child, he has no other dependent. He left school after the second year of secondary school.

Wellars became a client of ACB in 2011. This is his second loan cycle. With this new loan, he is preparing his field for cultivation, buying agricultural inputs and chemical fertilizers. He foresees no difficulty in repaying this loan.

In order to expand his farming business, Wellars is planning to apply for more loans in order to buy additional fields. With more arable land, he will be able to realize his vision to become the first potato farmer in his region. He will also build a house for his family.

Besides potato farming, for which he receives financing, Wellars also raises cows.
