Justus is a 57-year-old married man with five children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He is a farmer and has been in this sector for 6 years. He started the business by growing a few tea seedlings at home and later bought extensive land here. He now grows tea on a large scale.

Justus wants a loan to buy tea seedlings for planting. He is faced with the challenges of seasonal weather changes and the high cost of aggro inputs.
