Tadeo is married with five children who are all school-going and he is in charge of paying their school fees plus meeting all the basic needs of the family. He is into an agricultural trade business and it is from this that he has managed to take care of the needs of his family. In addition to agricultural trade, Tadeo trades in local brew commonly known as 'waragi' to supplement his income.

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.
