Samson is a 37-year-old, married man with five children, living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He has a retail shop where he sells new clothes. He also grows cocoa and has now started the retail shop, so as to meet his family's daily expenses since his other work is seasonal. Price fluctuations and ever-changing customer preferences affect the business, while his plan is to own a modern boutique.
Samson intends to use the loan to buy clothes to sell.
