Uziah, age 35, is a coffee farmer whose primary source of income is the coffee trade. He has applied for a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 UGX in order to buy fertilizers for his coffee plants. He intends to apply the fertilizers during the rainy season so that they penetrate deep in the soil, and he will in turn receive improved and increased yields.

Uziah and his wife have five school-age children.

Uziah is confident that he will have a good harvest next season, since his coffee plantation is already mulched. Uziah will also increase the acreage of his coffee plantation, as the neighboring farmer has agreed to sell his coffee "shamba" (farming area) to him.
