A loan of $1,200 helped to buy organic manure.


Provia's story

Provia is a mother of six children who is determined to give her children the best in life despite the meager resources she has. She is a longtime farmer who has been in the farming business since 1999. Her farm is in a rural area in Igara in the Bushenyi District. Banana bacterial wilt is the main challenge in her business, since it affects the banana stems and hence the size and quality of the bananas harvested.

Provia has applied for 3,000,000 UGX to buy manure to apply on the farm so that she can have improved harvests. Her clients are the banana traders in her local area, and she believes that if she gets the loan she will supply them with better bananas and hence will satisfy her customers and keep the market. She has high hopes of being financially stable if the loan is given.
