Edward is a 34-year-old married man with three children living in Kagadi, Uganda.
He is a teacher by profession and has been in service for 10 years.
In order to supplement his meager salary he decided to venture into produce buying and selling. The business has been very lucrative.
Price fluctuation and inadequate capital to meet demand are his major challenges, while his dream is to own a food store in town.
Edward is requesting a loan to buy maize and groundnuts to sell.
