Kasiimu is a farmer who deals in agriculture specifically matooke growing and he supplements his family income with cereal farming that is seasonal.
Kasiimu started his agriculture business in 1984 and since then he has been able to achieve a lot out of it.
He started his agriculture business because the land for him to cultivate on a large scale was available; he says his clients are traders from the city. And he has acquired this loan in order to buy fertilizers for the banana plantation so that he can get high yields. Kasiimu hopes to be the largest supplier of bananas in the whole district.
Kasiimu faces the challenge of lack of enough money to maintain his banana plantation and poor weather conditions which affect the crops.
He describes himself as a hard working and honest man.
