A loan of $775 helped to buy more chicks and poultry feed.

John's story

John, 34, is married with four children who are 12, 10, 7 and 4 years old. Three of the children attend school, and he is paying their school fees. John is a poultry farmer and he has been doing this since 2000 as a major source of income to support his family.

Previously, John borrowed UGX 1,000,000 from Ugafode so that he could expand his poultry business. With that loan, John says he was able to increase the number of eggs produced.

John now wants another loan of UGX1,500,000 to buy more chicks and poultry feed so that he can increase his returns.

John's dream is to buy a vehicle to help him transport the feed to the farm, as well as transporting eggs to the markets.

The challenge John faces is the risky nature of the business, plus the increase in the prices of feed and chicks.
