He is a hardworking and committed businessman, owning a retail shop that deals in assorted household items, ranging from food items, beverages, and other daily use items. This business has fostered the general well-being of the client’s family and enabled him to lead a reasonably good life, while also constructing both commercial and residential houses.

John is a first time borrower with UGAFODE and has taken a credit facility of 5,000,000 UGX to use as working capital for restocking the business. He is always faced with the challenge of competition from those venturing into the same business and also seasonality, which affect his cash inflows.
