Lemegio, age 35, sells produce (specifically maize) to earn a living. He is a hard-working man and has four children. The family lives in Kamwenge, Uganda. The primary hindrance to his business is price fluctuation, and he earns additional income from operating a motorcycle transportation business.

Like all good fathers, he desires to educate his children up to the University level. To this end, he hopes eventually to set up sustainable, income-generating activities like rentals. Lemegio's dream is to own a food store and to buy another motorcycle.

Lemegio intends to use his loan funds to buy maize to offer for sale.
