Matiansi's story

Matiansi, aged 40 years, is married with five children. He is a resident of Bundibugyo, Uganda. His business is cocoa farming and selling foodstuffs such as maize, beans, and ground nuts. He ventured into business in 1999 to raise income for the family and serve the available market locally.

He possesses a vision of educating his children and building his family a fully furnished permanent residential house, only to be challenged by seasonality changes, just like other cocoa dealers. Matiansi intends to use the loan to pay for labor and buy cement and other items to plaster his house.
