Denis is a 33-year-old married man with one child living in Kasese, Uganda. For six years he has been selling maize, and he also earns a salary from the government as a teacher. Like most good fathers he desires to educate his children up to university and to build a good residential house for them.

Price fluctuations and inadequate capital hinder his business growth, while his desire is to trade on wholesale. Denis intends to use the loan to buy maize to sell.
