UNFFEICT4Farmers Partnership Meeting.Peter Ongom
The President of the Uganda National farmers federation and also the lead UNFFEICT4Farmers program, Dr. Dick Kamuganga meets with MD Uganda Development Bank (UDB) Ms. Patricia Ojangole and her team. The MD expressed a need to understand and seek avenues for partnership with UNFFEICT4FARMERS. One of the challenges the farmers expressed in the Farmer’s Manfesto of 2021 to 2026 was access to finances, though there are financial avenues in place like SACCOs, Banks, VSLA and other farmers groups, access to finances has still remained a challenge among the small holder farmers in some regions in Uganda. With the partnership of UDB and UNFFEICT4FARMERS this will address the issues with access to finances and hence improving farming and the agriculture sector at large for the small holder farmers in Uganda.
