A loan of $800 helped to hire laborers to uproot infected trees and replace them with new ones.


Yafesi's story

Yafesi (pictured with his wife) has been a banana farmer since he was a teenager. His banana plantation has remained his sole source of income.

Yafesi is dealing with banana wilt, which is damaging his trees. He is applying for a 2,000,000 UGX loan through UGAFODE to hire laborers to uproot the infected trees and then replace them with new banana plants. He believes this will solve his problem once and for all.

Yafesi is grateful to UGAFODE for giving him a second chance with his plantation. With this loan he will be able to increase his yields and income so as to meet his family’s needs.
