A loan of $600 helped to expand on his passion fruit orchard, paying workers and buying mulches.


Moses's story

Moses is a single man, aged 27. He is a farmer, engaged primarily in the growing of passion fruit, sugarcane, and cabbages, among other crops, for commercial purposes. He started the business of agriculture in 2008, making it his source of income after getting out of school and failing to find formal employment. This is what he had studied, after his ordinary level of education. Once before, Moses borrowed a loan of UGX 800,000 (eight hundred thousand shillings), which he used in his agricultural business, and he says it worked for him.

Now, Moses has approached UGAFODE for another loan, this time in the amount of 1,500,000 (one million, five hundred thousand shillings). He will use this loan to expand on his passion fruit orchard, paying workers and buying mulches for the orchard. He is faced with challenges, such as the changing weather, which affects agricultural production, as well as price fluctuations in the markets.

Moses hopes to acquire a motorcycle to help him transport his passion fruit to the market, and to acquire a machine for squeezing sugarcane to brew, so that he can earn more profits, in the near future.
