Nyansio is 39 years old and married to Margret. Together, they have produced 5 children ages 7 to 19 and they reside at the Buroroa Trading Centre. Additionally, they look after two orphans who are relatives.

Nyansio operates a retail shop selling general merchandise but he also does some farming. He started this business in 2007 because there were only a few shops in the area serving a large population which was inadequate. He has applied for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to buy more stock of household use items since there is a lot of demand by the residents. He has plans of constructing a commercial house to raise his income base.

The biggest challenge he faces is the poor road network, especially when he needs to go shopping in the big town.
