Connie is a 51year old widow and mother of two children. She operates a poultry farm that has been struggling because she has constantly had to withdraw all the profits and sometimes the capital to pay tuition for her children. Connie, who lives on the outskirts of the city, is also challenged by the high cost of poultry feed. Unfortunately, the price of chicken does not increase much. With this loan, she hopes that the status of her business will change and improve her income levels. She is a hard working woman.

This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
