John is a first time borrower from Ugafode microfinance ltd (MDI), applying for a credit facility of five hundred thousand shillings (500,000). He is married with four children with a residential house in Kawempe, a trading centre near Kampala city. John is a poultry farmer and a motor cycle taxi rider. This has enabled him to make an income to look after his family by providing school fees for his four children who attend school and for other necessities.

John says that he has a ready market for his chicken and eggs, but has inadequate capital to buy poultry feeds which are layers and boilers mash. Thus he is applying for a loan to solve this. Furthermore, he says he has plans to pay off his loan and apply for subsequent loans to make his poultry business sustainable.
