Abusolomu is a 32-year-old married man with four children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. In order to support his growing family, he decided to start a retail shop and with the proceeds he has been able to buy land and pay school fees for his children. Like most traders, he is challenged by inadequate capital to meet the demand and by price fluctuations while his dream is to trade wholesale.
Abusolomu intends to use the loan to buy maize, cassava flour, sugar, rice and baking flour to sell.
