Jurse, aged 38 years, is married with four children. He acquired a loan of UGX 2,000,000. All his children are in school. His business is tea farming and trade. His other sources of income are selling plantains from his plantation. He wants money to mulch his banana plantation and also to trade in green tea leaves. His business started in 1996 in Kibona Mashonga. He started the business to earn a living since it was not easy for him to survive without any meaningful income. His clients are fellow farmers from the village who also grow tea but with no means of reaching the factory. The challenge is transport during rainy seasons. He thanks the bank for having such a cheap agriculture facility that has helped him to meet his financial challenges.
