Deogratius's story

Deogratius is aged 37 and married. He has seven children. Six of his children attend school, and he is in charge of paying the school fees. Deogratius operates a 'waragi' trade business as his major source of income. ('Waragi' is a local, distilled beverage, similar to gin.) He has been doing this work since 2002. Deogratius also practices agriculture, as an additional sources of income for the family.

He has approached UGAFODE for a loan of 1,500,000 Uganda shillings. He will use part of the loan to buy 'waragi,' and another part to pay workers to plough land, for maize growing in the coming season. His dream is to grow his business, to realize greater returns and also to improve the living conditions of the family.
