Fred's story

Fred, aged 28, has four children and two dependants from his late brother who died four years ago. All his children and dependants are in school and depend on him for survival. As he has such family responsibilities, Fred has resorted to serious banana farming producing many bunches of matooke (a variety of banana) each month to supply the nearby schools and hospital. This activity has made it possible for Fred to afford to pay school fees for his children and to look after the whole family. Through farming, he has also managed to build a semi-permanent house but it’s not yet finished so he wants to take out a loan of 2,000,000 UGX to complete his house.
