Mbarara, Uganda / Farming

A loan of $500 helped to buy organic manure for his banana farm.


Julius's story

Julius is a Ugandan man, 40 years old, with 8 children, all of whom are in school and depend on him for their survival, since he lost their mum to cancer. Because of having such a big family and so many responsibilities, he started serious farming of the bananas commonly referred to as "matooke,” producing over 60 bunches a month, an activity that has enabled him to pay school fees for his children and to look after the whole family. He is applying for a loan of UGX 1,200,000 to add manure to his plantation and increase his productivity, which will in turn increase the income of his family.
