A loan of $425 helped to buy organic manure,.

Joseph's story

Joseph is a farmer and cattle keeper who works seven hours a day, six days a week. He started farming in 2000 because it was profitable and he wanted to be able to pay his child’s school fees. He sells his output to traders around the area. However, he must deal with price fluctuations and drought conditions which affect his crops and can lead to a low yield.

Joseph is applying for a 1,000,000 UGX loan through UGAFODE to buy organic manure, which he thinks will boost his earnings. He also hopes to be the leading supplier of his variety of produce in his village and surrounding areas.

Joseph feels it is good that UGAFODE advises its clients about their businesses and listens to any problems that may result in a delay in payment. He wants to thank Kiva lenders for their support.
