The Bank supports the Cooperative Society in financing seed multiplication for FICA and NASECO seed companies. Abasaijja Kweyamba is currently rated the best small holder farmer organization in seed multiplication in terms of quality and quantity.

UDBL intervention has helped the society produce a minimum of MT 400 per season of certified seeds to support the agriculture sector hence reducing the demand-supply parity that is being exploited by fake seed and imports. In addition, the Bank’s intervention has contributed to an increase in house hold incomes by approximately UGX 10 million per annum, contributed towards food security in the country through the seed inputs provided by the Society and also provided employment opportunities to the community.
