Edward says that his major challenges are price fluctuations and long dry spells that reduce the farm's output. He hopes to use this loan to buy agricultural produce to sell at his store, especially sacks of beans and maize. This new inventory will help him improve his income sources and standard of living.
He says he has managed to construct a backyard at his home, making his quality of life improve. Edward hopes to retire from his government job, and have trading in produce be his source of income thereafter.
