These are odds 25 year old L. Bashir did not want to face, having experienced firsthand how many people around his locality were suffering as a result of taking counter-productive decisions in their lives.

Bashir is a courteous and warm hearted gentle young man who is a father of 1 child. 3 years ago he embarked on his retail shop business in Kimenyedde-Kayunga. In a week, he makes profits totaling to 190,000 shillings and in the near future, he is thinking about opening up a super market or going wholesale. With this loan, he wants to buy more retail stock for his shop. He is anticipating buying items such as rice, sugar, soap, beans and flour. With increased profits, he says he will be able to save more so that he make his dream of either opening a super market or going wholesale come true.
