A loan of $800 helped to buy organic manure.


Robert's story

Robert is married and lives with 5 dependents, two for whom he took over guardianship after the demise of their parents. He started as a small farmer and cattle keeper, but later, after attending several trainings from NAADs, he realized that relying on subsistence farming would not allow him to achieve his goal.

He sold his local breed cattle and bought hybrid cows that yield more milk and at the same time can be kept on a small piece of land. With the help of NAADs he has received free coffee seedlings and now wants to buy manure.

However, his capital is not enough to invest in a coffee plantation and at the same time support his cattle business. Therefore, he applied for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 from UGAFODE to help him buy organic manure to improve the coffee yields.
