Gilbert has been running a retail shop for four years. He got the initial capital after selling off his plot. Price fluctuations, inflation and inadequate capital to purchase stock are his major challenges. His business goal is to expand his business into new markets. Gilbert wants a loan to buy general merchandise such as rice and sugar to sell.
Gilbert is a 42-year-old businessman, married with three children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. His personal goals are to educate his children to university level, build a permanent house for his family, and buy a car to transport his commodities to his customers.
