John is 43 years old and married with eight children, living in Hioma, Uganda.
He is a produce dealer and has been in this business for over eight years. He is faced with challenges of seasonal weather variations, which makes the prices of produce fluctuate, and inadequate capital to exploit the ready market.
John intends to use the loan to buy produce, such as beans and maize, to sell. In the future he hopes to move his business to a more permanent location, instead of moving from one market to the other.
His family goal is to work hard and ensure that all his children get educated.
