Peter is a 49-year-old man, married, with seven children, living in Fort Portal, Uganda. He lives with his family in a semi permanent home and his dream is to educate his children and improve the well-being of his family. Peter has had a tailoring business for the last 30 years. This has enabled him to farm which has helped him get enough capital to start up a side business. He has the challenge of clients failing to pay on time, though it has not stopped him from improving his business and the trade in general by training more tailors. Peter needs this loan to buy chicks for a poultry project and also to pay school fees for his children.
