John Bosco is a 40-year-old, married man, with four children, living in Kamwenge, Uganda. He is a driver who earns a salary, but also carries out other businesses, such as farming and animal-rearing in order to raise money to support his growing family. Low salary payment and price fluctuations are his major challenges, while his desire is to buy more land for farming and also to buy a taxi.
John Bosco intends to use the loan to buy land for farming.
