Moses is a twenty-eight-year-old married man with one child who is twelve years old living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He is a teacher by profession and works eight hours a day. He was inspired to join the service by his desire to nurture the children of this nation. Like most government employees, he is dissatisfied with the low salary, which comes in late, and his dream is to set up a retail shop so as to meet his family's daily expenditure.
Moses intends to use a loan to buy general merchandise such as soap and sugar to sell.
