Twaha's story

Twaha is a resident of Hoima, Uganda. He deals in the sale of dry foods like maize, beans, and rice. He is a young man, aged twenty four, and very hard-working. His dream is to turn his dry food business into a big venture that is able to supply the whole district and to become a known supplier in the district. However, Twaha faces the challenge of inadequate capital, and also the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected markets. He is therefore requesting a loan to help him stock more beans, maize, and rice to sell.
