Yofesi's story

Yofesi is a 39-year-old man with four children living in Kagadi, Uganda. For twelve years, he has been running a carpentry workshop. He started by using his own trees on his land. He made furniture and sold it. After accumulating enough capital, he decided to buy timber from others to make more furniture. Now, Yofesi wants a loan to buy timber for furniture making.

Yofesi faces problems of customers not paying on time and seasonal weather. He would like to educate his children and expand his business to other areas.
