Stephen is a 33-year-old, married man who has three children, living in Kasese, Uganda. For two years he has been dealing in produce, and with the profits he has been able to build rental houses and pay school fees for his children. Unpredictable weather changes, and inadequate capital to stock up for when the crops are out of season, are his challenges. His dream is to diversify and trade in other agricultural products, like maize. Stephen intends to use the loan to buy cassava flour to sell.
