Charles is a 57-year-old married man with five children living in Kasese, Uganda. For 30 years now he has been an agriculturalist, growing crops and rearing poultry. The business has been very lucrative, and in a day he collects over 300 eggs which he sells to restaurants near by.

Charles intends to use the loan to buy poultry feed. High cost of feed and diseases affect his business growth. His dreams are to educate his children up to university and to buy more chicks that can provide him with eggs to supply his current market and venture into new ones.
