A loan of $400 helped to buy ground-nuts and maize to offer for sale.

Benon's story

Benon, age 61, is a farmer and a vendor of agricultural produce. He farms banana and sugar cane as well as other crops, and his customers are wholesalers from the city.

Benon lives with his wife and children in Fort Portal, Uganda. His primary objective is to bring in a good income so that he can support his family and eventually provide for his children's higher education.

The current rainy seasons often make the roads impassable, and floods are also a great threat to his business. His desire is eventually to own a food store in town.

Benon intends to use the loan to buy ground-nuts and maize to sell.
