Abstract
To increase the income of a country such as Uganda, whose economy depends largely on peasant farmers, it has become necessary to encourage a change from purely subsistence farming to the cultivation of cash crops such as cotton, coffee and groundnuts. One of the main obstacles to this change of emphasis and to the necessary improvement of standards is the lack of credit facilities to finance even small capital improvements. This latter factor aggravated by the prevailing system of land tenure which in Busoga is based on a form of collective tribal ownership.
