A loan of $200 helped to buy building materials for his home.


Benon's story

Benon is a 47-year-old farmer with six children, ages 18, 15, 12, 10, 08 and 04 years old. He mainly grows bananas, maize, and beans for household and commercial purposes and has been doing since 2002.

Benon requests a 500,000 loan to buy materials to complete his residential house. He wants to complete this house so that the family can live in improved living conditions as opposed to his current condition.

His dream is to expand his farming to a commercial level so that he can have good returns from the business. However his challenge is the changing seasonality in agriculture plus the fluctuation of the prices for produce on the market. In the photo is Benon (right) with the Ugafode credit officer (left).
