Sarapio is a 37-year-old man with six children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. In order to supplement his cocoa plantation, he decided to start a retail shop where he earns money to meet the daily expenses of his family. Like all good fathers, he wants to educate his children up to university and set up sustainable income-generating activities, such as housing, in order to secure their future. Price fluctuation poses a great challenge to his business growth. His goal is to trade wholesale. Sarapio intends to use this loan to buy general merchandise such as salt and soap to sell.
