Cyril is a 57-year-old married man from Kamwenge, Uganda, who lives in a semi-permanent house. For the past 30 years he has been an agriculturalist who grows pineapples. He began with one acre of pineapples and currently he has four acres under cultivation.
Cyril is requesting a loan to buy a motorcycle to transport his pineapples to market. His goals are to educate his children, build a permanent house, and buy a truck, since his major business difficulty is the high cost of transport.
