David, a 27-year-old, hardworking married man, lives in Kyenjojo, Uganda, with his three children aged 6, 4 and 2. For the past year, he has been in the transport business as a motorcycle driver, working to help meet his family's basic needs. It is a challenging job, thanks to poor roads (especially in the rainy season, when they become almost impassable) coupled with high fuel and transportation costs.
David has a personal goal of building a permanent house and venturing into agriculture. He is requesting this loan so he can buy land for both cultivation and construction purposes.
