Edward is a 37-year-old married Ugandan man with five children, of whom four attend school. He is not only a miller but also a mechanic which generates income for him. The only factor that has prompted him to acquire a loan is to buy a bigger milling machine. His future hope is to see himself a millionaire as he wishes his income to increase. Edward is challenged by inadequate capital which at times makes him fail to achieve his targets.
