Robinson is 30 years old and lives in Masindi, Uganda, where he has earned a living as a farmer for the last four years. He started by farming on a small scale and after two good seasons bought more land to use for commercial farming. Like most farmers, his challenges include price fluctuations and seasonal changes in the weather. His dreams for the future are to educate his children, buy a car and go into the field of mechanized agriculture. Robinson is requesting this loan to buy fertilizers and seedlings to plant.
