Maruusi Namigadde is a new borrower, age 35 years old. She is a widow, with three children.

She applied for a loan of UGX.1,500,000 to improve her farming business. She will hire manpower to clear the farmland.

She has the challenge of little business turnover from her commercial farming and low market prices, so she decided to come to UGAFODE for a loan to increase manpower and expand both her farmland and agricultural business. The reason is to improve her well-being and her children's.
