David's story

David is 50 years old and married with six children, four of his children are school-going. He is a peasant farmer involved in cattle rearing and growing coffee and sugarcane. David has been practicing agriculture for the last 20 years and it is the major source of income for looking after the family and paying school fees for his children. His clients are residents of his village and from the outskirts of Kagadi town who buy his milk and sugarcane.

David wants a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy more cows for rearing as well as improving on the sugarcane and banana plantation. He is always challenged by the changing weather conditions that affect his agricultural business.

David's dream is to educate his children up to higher institutions of learning and help him in the future. He also hopes to buy a machine which will help him add value to his sugarcane, for example brewing it into local gin. But his wish is to see the lender availing him with financial services to have his dream come true.
