A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy fertilizer for his gardens.

Rwanyanja Church Group's story

Herbert is a 50 year old married man with 7 children. He is a member of Rwanyanja Church Group and a resident of Rukungiri District. He is basically involved in agriculture and he specializes in coffee planting, supplementing them with banana plantations and other crops.

He has been practicing agriculture for quite a long time, and from his business he has been able to build a good house for his family, provide education to his children, and also provide other basic needs.

Through his group, he has secured a loan of UGX 800,000 from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) with Kiva funds to buy more fertilizer. At the end of the season he expects high yields from his farm. The whole group secured a loan of UGX 4,900,000 and they are grateful to UGAFODE for the service rendered.

In the photograph are 11 clients; the eleventh member has not got a loan in this cycle though signed the waiver form.

In this group: Robert , Herbert, Brian, Naris, Jane, Yustine, Lydia, Fara, Jusenta, Rosemary
