51-year-old William made a transition from farming to a food sales business four years ago. The father of four figured food sales would bring in more financial dividends, not only in the short, but in the long run. The foods he sells, dried cassava and maize, sell lucratively on the food markets, not only in Kyenjojo, but in most towns in Western Uganda.

Though he still has lots of time to make up, he anticipates the forthcoming months will be favorable for his business. He envisages growth and at length, he reckons he will be able to put up his own maize mill.

He is also hoping his sales returns trajectory that currently is in the region of 450,000 UGX will grow.

William says this loan will come in handy for the purchase of more dried maize and cassava to resell.
