John Seruma
46-year-old John Seruma K. is a dedicated, affable and foresighted gentleman with a clear sense of what he wants for his business in the short and long term. Before he began this business he was more inclined to carpentry, but for the last 10 years he has worked hard in his metal fabrication and welding workshop in Kayunga Town. John mostly makes products like metal doors, gates, windows and deckers, and in a week makes 100,000 shillings. The happily married father of five also concurrently operates a mowing business.

With this loan of 2,000,000 UGX, John wants to purchase more scrap metal. This, he says, will aid him in making most of the products he sells, such as metal gates, beds and windows.

In the photo John Seruma K. is seen standing besides some of the metal products he has made.
