Abib, a 26-year-old married man living in Kasese, Uganda, has been selling salt for five years, and with the profits he has been able to pay school fees and provide other major basics for his family.

Abib, who has a demarcated well in the lake from which he extracts the salt, also buys from other miners. His major hardship is lack of proper protective equipment to use during extraction, thus exposing him to health hazards.

Abib is requesting this loan to buy salt to sell. His dreams are to acquire modern mining equipment and to process the salt to add value.
