Jimmy's story

Jimmy is a thirty-one-year-old, married man with three children living in Kagadi, Uganda. Since 2003 he has been farming and also trades in produce since his farm outputs are not enough for vast markets. With the proceeds he has been able to pay the school fees for his children and buy more land for farming.

Like most farmers Jimmy has challenges of price fluctuation and inadequate capital, while his dreams are to build a permanent residential house and venture into mechanized agriculture. Jimmy intends to use the loan to buy maize, groundnuts and beans to sell.
