A loan of $400 helped to buy bananas for sale.


Gersom's story

Gersom is a farmer in Kitojo 2 – Sheema District. He mainly grows bananas, which he sells to get money for his family’s upkeep. He started banana growing in 2009 with a motive of getting a source of income which he would use to educate his four children. The business is located in his local cell in Kitojo – Sheema. In addition to the matoke (green banana) selling business, he also operates a grocery, which brings in additional income. Gersom’s clients are mainly the local people who have greatly supported him. His major challenge is lack of working capital, which has hindered him from growing the business to the required standards.
