Alex, 40, is a married man with six children living in Kagadi, Uganda. After assessing the need in his community, he decided to set up a clinic since most government hospitals lack pharmaceutical drugs. With the income earned, Alex has been able to buy land and expand his clinic. Bad debts and high labor turnover are challenges he faces in his business. Alex's desire is to have a private hospital with qualified personnel. He intends to use this loan to buy pharmaceutical drugs for his clinic.
