Medard is a twenty-seven-year-old married man with two children living in Kasese, Uganda. He has been practicing agriculture for seven years and the sector is very lucrative since it is the major backbone of the economy. As agriculture is seasonal and cannot ably facilitate him to meet his day-to-day family expenses, he set up a retail shop. Price fluctuations and unpredictable seasonal weather changes are his major challenges; however, these not withstanding, he hopes to venture into modern farming methods, especially irrigating during the dry season. Medard is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer for his banana and coffee plantations.
