Emilio's story

Emilio is a 42-year-old married man with eight children, living in Kasese, Uganda.

He sells eggs and has been in business for two years. Since the eggs are so delicate, he sometimes loses a great many during transportation, and he desires to rent out a business premise to operate from. He has more dreams, such as educating his children, and having a poultry project.

Emilio intends to use the loan to pay school fees for his children.
