His humility, self confidence and placid nature aside, 28-year-old John is an assiduous farmer whose philosophy over the last 12 years has been making the best out of bad bargains and always hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. He has made unprecedented strides following the above mentioned precepts.

John, a happily married father of 10, grows and sells mostly bananas, beans and coffee. Bananas are a staple food in most parts of Uganda, principally Kampala and Mbarara. Food businessmen from Kampala and Mbarara are his biggest clients. On the side, he also relies on income from his modest cattle and goats sales trade. Thus far, John says this business generates him sales income to the total of about Ugandan shillings 350,000 a month.

John says he intends to use his loan to purchase more cattle and goats to resell.
