Peter is a 33-year-old-married Ugandan father of four children, three of whom attend school. Although farming is his major business, he also sells fresh food to earn additional income. Price fluctuations and weather changes are his major challenges.
Peter joined the farming sector for a number of reasons, including the need to educate his children and construct a residential house. He has requested this loan to buy beans and maize to resell.
