Venant is a 26-year-old government employee who works as a primary school teacher. This father to two children is married and lives in Kagadi, Uganda. He was inspired to the teaching profession by his urge to serve the nation and he feels there is no better way than to teach the children of his nation. He also sells produce to supplement the low pay from his salary. Inadequate capital to meet the high demand is his great challenge while his dream is to own a wholesale shop. Venant is requesting a loan to buy groundnuts to sell.
