Wilson
Wilson is 49 years old and married with six children, all of whom attend school. He operates a poultry business and sells eggs. He has been doing this since 1990. His business enables him to provide for his family.

In addition to his poultry business, Wilson also has a piggery and maize-milling business, which provides a supplemental income.

Wilson is requesting a loan of 3 million UGX to buy poultry feed so that he can meet the demand for eggs in the area. This will put him in a position to earn more returns.

Wilson dreams of buying a machine so that he can start manufacturing poultry feed on his farm rather than buying it. This would enable him to reduce his expenses.

Wilson's business challenges include his poultry's vulnerability to diseases and the increasing price of feed.
