Michael is a 38-year-old married man with six children living in Kagadi, Uganda. He has a bicycle spare parts business, which he has operated for over seven years. He also has a sugarcane plantation, and he uses the sugar cane to brew alcohol. The business is rural-based, and he started it to get daily income to enable a smooth running of his family and serve the people of the area, since he is a mechanic.
He would like to construct a good permanent house for residence despite the poor road network that hinders his business operations. Micheal intends to use the loan to buy bicycle spare parts to sell.
