A loan of $800 helped to fight banana-wilt disease by buying fertilizers and sprays and paying workers to uproot the damaged stems.

Ivan's story

Ivan is a 41 years old and married, with eight children. He lives in Kasese, Uganda.

He is a farmer but also has a transport business to earn more money to support his family.

Of late his plantation of bananas has been affected by the banana-wilt disease, which has caused a drop in his yields. He hopes to rehabilitate the plantation, so he intends to use the loan to buy fertilizers and sprays and pay workers who are to uproot the affected stems.
