Gerald, age 35, is a banana farmer. He and his wife have three children, and he works hard to support them.

Gerald's primary business challenge is low matooke output (matooke is a variety of cooking banana) on his farm, and he wishes to tackle this problem aggressively because the market for matooke has grown in the area. He used his previous loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings to improve his farm by mulching his banana plantation, and he is confident that this will help increase his yields.

He decided to come to UGAFODE for a second loan in order to buy organic manure and additional mulch. He is confident that this investment will do wonders for his agricultural production.
