Solomon's story

Solomon is married with three children; only two are attending school. He lives in Kyenjojo, Uganda.

He is requesting a loan facility to buy baby shawls, blankets, toys, shoes and many other children's clothes for sale. He is an innovative man who ventured into a children’s wear boutique, with an extra income from selling soft drinks such as sodas, fizzy juice and passion fruit.

Solomon says the business is unique, with many customers. This has inspired him, and he hopes to start a children's day care center in the future.

Solomon is currently faced with a challenge of limited capital.
