Francis's story

Francis is requesting a 2,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to help expand his business and buy more flowers, seedlings, trees, and fruit plants. His loan will help him to generate greater profits and boost his business by allowing him to sell more. Francis hopes that in the future, he will be able to have a larger farm and improve his standard of living.
