Clare is an old client married to Ephraim with six children; they reside in the Nkongoro area in Ntungamo district.

She applied for loan of ugx.3,000,000. She has a good banana plantation, and she wants to buy mulching materials to improve it. She will also take her children to better schools with the loan she gets.

Her dream is to see her plantation yield more bananas, locally called "matooke". She would also want to buy her own transport van for ferrying the bananas to the market which she hopes to do with the help of the loan facilitation in the near future though she is still limited by capital, yet she has enough experience in her business.

With this loan she is hopeful that her banana plantation will get a better yield and therefore increase the profits.
