Fred is a new client and a resident of rural Uganda. He is aged 45 years old. He deals in agriculture and wants to improve it so that he can increase his income but he is lacking enough money to buy organic manure and hire labor. That’s why he has come to UGAFODE for loan hoping that it can change his output by increasing yields so that he will be able to harvest more matooke (bananas). He applied for a loan of UGX 5,000,000 and is optimistic that this will change his income and status. He is grateful that Kiva lenders are willing to support his dream of alleviating the poverty of his household. He is hardworking.
