Paul wants a loan to help weed and harvest his crops. He is aged 53 and lives in Masindi, Uganda. He is married and charged with a responsibility of taking care of eight children. He is a farmer who started as a subsistence farmer and now has around four acres of land where he practices mixed farming. Price fluctuations and inflation, inadequate capital, and seasonality hinder his business. He desires to educate his children, build a permanent home and buy a car.
He hopes to diversify his business to include cattle keeping and to hire employees to expand his business.
