James is 48 years old. He trades in produce. He has requested a loan of UGX 1,000,000. He will use the loan to acquire a piece of land comprising a coffee plantation. This will enable him to begin harvesting some coffee from his own land, instead of buying everything from the neighbours. This will help him save some money with which to educate his children. He is hard-working, and he thanks Kiva for taking interest in his ventures.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
