Emilio is a 49-year-old married man with seven children living in Kasese, Uganda. He has been operating a drug shop business for 20 years. He started the business after realizing that his meager salary could hardly meet his family's basic needs.

High license fees and inadequate capital to meet the overwhelming demand for drugs pose a challenge to his business growth, while his dream is to set up a community hospital. He also desires to educate his children up to university. Emilio is requesting for a loan to buy drugs to sell.
