James is an honest and hardworking person. He is an agriculturalist and grows millet as his major source of income. He is also involved in coffee trading; he buys and sells coffee from other coffee out growers in his community.

He is now constructing a rental house at his home, which he hopes will help him earn more income for his family. He has found it difficult to finish this house using his own income.
