Ignatius is a forty-six-year-old married man with four children living in Hioma, Uganda. He has a poultry project, where he rears broilers and layers. He also gets additional income from his salary and farming.
As a good father, he desires to educate his children up to university level, and to set up sustainable income generating activities such as rental houses. High cost of feeds and limited capital affect his business profits, but his desire is to own at least 10,000 birds by the end of the year.
Ignatius intends to use the loan to buy chicks for rearing.
