Frank is a 34-year-old married man with four children living in Kagadi, Uganda. For twenty years he has been trading in produce, mainly maize and beans. He started by growing his own crops, then sold then and got capital to buy in bulk from other farmers.

His challenges include price fluctuation and inflation which erodes most of the profits. His dreams are to build a permanent house for residence as they are currently living in a mud-wattled house and setting up a food store that can sustainably supply his customers all year round.

Frank is requesting a loan to buy maize and beans to sell.
