Who are the beneficiaries and how much is the size of the loan?
The Youth Financial Scheme benefits disadvantaged young people who are focused to change their status. 10 youths who pioneered this project in 2015 received loans and started their businesses in poultry, piggery, secretarial, and craft businesses. Mentors are offering them periodical support and guidance to enable them to run successful businesses.
Currently, the maximum loan amount is UGX: 1,000,000= (1 million) per business. However, when we get more resources our wish is to increase the loan amount to suit individual business needs.
I am Nsubuga Joseph a beneficiary of the Youth Finance Scheme, in 2018 I had an idea of starting a poultry farm, I had no money to start a business and my life was hard for me. Someone told me about Youth with A Vision went there with my Idea.
They told me to bring my business plan and I had no idea of writing a business plan and they helped me, to write a good business plan. They provided me an internship which gave me the courage to continue with my business idea of a poultry farm.
I received a loan of UGX 1,500,000 to start up my own poultry business.
I started with 200 layer birds. This business greatly changed my life. I got enough grace period and this helped me to get enough time for the chicken to start laying and to sell eggs. The chicken gives 10-11 trays of eggs a day.
I get enough money which has helped to pay my monthly loan installments, take good care of my family, and also employ two youths who are helping me.
My future plan is to boost my poultry farm to 1000 layer birds, start producing my own feeds for the chicken, and even create more jobs for other youth who are in the condition I was before knowing Youth With A Vision.
May God bless the work of Youth With A Vision for changing my life and for giving me the courage to do it.
