A loan of $1,200 helped to buy land for farming.


John's story

John is a 30-year-old man, married with three children living in Masindi, Uganda.

He has been earning a salary as a teacher for the past nine years. With his little salary, he has managed to pay school fees for his children, dreams of educating them to the university level, and building them a good house to live in.

Low pay (that is even delayed) is his major challenge, while his dream is to venture into farming.

John is requesting for a loan to buy land for farming.
