A loan of $1,325 helped to buy bananas for resale.


Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel used his previous loan to buy land to expand his plantation. He is a 32-year-old married man with three children, living in Kyenjojo in Uganda.

For the past eight years he has been growing bananas for commercial purposes. He accumulated capital from selling maize and beans and bought land, which he is currently farming. He faces the problems of seasonal weather changes, theft, high fuel prices, and transportation. He has a personal goal of buying a car for easy transportation and a business goal of trading in bananas since the demand is very high and his plantation is not sufficient for the market. Emmanuel intends to use this loan to buy bananas to sell.
