A loan of $5,550 helped a member to buy mulch and more passionfruit plants to increase his stock.

Zibulatudde Development Group's story

John is pictured wearing a yellow t-shirt with black stripes. He grows and sells passionfruit to earn a living. He works 7 days a week for 10 hours each day. He is also involved in farming for another source of income, and he has been in this business for three years. John began his business to acquire some income to support his family.

With his portion of the loan, John would like to buy more passionfruit. He will buy mulch for the passionfruit and also restock some of the passionfruit plants to increase his sales. It is the hot season so the mulch will help to maintain the moisture in the soil. He hopes that the loan will help him to take his business to another level.

John's main challenges are diseases and poor transport. He is hard working, resilient, honest and dependable.
