A loan helped to buy more beans, maize, and ground nuts to sell.


Tomas's story

Tomas is requesting a loan to buy more beans, maize, and ground nuts to sell. He is a hardworking 53-year-old man who resides in Kagadi, Uganda, and is married with 5 children. He has been involved in buying and selling agricultural produce for over 20 years, which is how he has been able to pay his children's school fees and provide for his family's other basic needs. He supplements this with farming, growing food and cash crops for additional income to meet his needs.

Even though Tomas works hard, he complains of low capital employed, high transportation costs, and price fluctuations of perishable goods. He hopes to someday save enough money to own a lorry.
