He wants a loan of 2,000,000 UGX. With the loan he will be able to renovate his residential house that is in a sorry state as witnessed in the picture. Apparently he is not safe from rodents like rats and ants which access his house easily due to the aged wood. He also wants to renovate the leaking roof because the children are continuously hit by rains, more so in this rainy season.
His dream is to construct a permanent house for the family in the near future. He will use the proceeds from his business to repay the loan. He still has challenges of limited capital and the fluctuation of agricultural products on the market. In the photograph is Tadeo with the UGAFODE Credit officer.
