Isakali is 36 years old. He dropped out early from school, because his parents could not afford tuition. He is a resident of Nsambya, a surburb of Kampala. Isakali is married and has five children, all attending school, and he also takes care of two dependents whose parents passed away.
Isakali started his business in 2007, and he deals in selling milk along Musajja Alumbwa Road. He also supplies milk to the neighboring shops and restaurants. Isakali got a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings, for purchasing more milk to meet the needs of his growing number of customers, and also to establish a better place from which to transact his business. These uses of the loan will enable him to earn enough money to look after his extended family.
Isakali’s major challenges are lack of capital, competition, and weather conditions -- especially rainy seasons, which disrupt his business because of his lack of proper shelter. Isakali is a hard-working man, according to information obtained from his neighbors, and he has the potential of working if he gets enough capital.
