Robert
Robert is a 57-year-old married man with seven children living in Kasese, Uganda. He trades in produce and he has been in this business for three months. He started the business after realizing that farming alone was not enough for him to meet the daily expenses of his family. He hopes to buy a maize milling machine. However, the poor condition of the roads is a challenge. Robert intends to use the loan to pay for school fees and buy cassava flour to sell.
