Wilson is a 61-year-old man with four children, living in Fort Portal, Uganda.

He is a farmer who mainly grows rice and maize, and with the proceeds he has been able to pay school fees for his children, and buy more land for expansion.

Inadequate capital, diseases, and pests pose challenges to his production levels, while his plans are to venture into modern farming methods and also build a permanent residential house, since he is now in a mud-wattled dwelling.

Wilson is requesting a loan to pay workers who are weeding his garden, and to buy sprays for his crops.
