A loan of $1,000 helped to buy maize to sell.


Godfrey's story

Godfrey is a thirty-seven-year-old married man with seven children living in Kasese, Uganda. He has been selling maize flour for six years and his business is located in the trading centre. He hopes to educate his children up to the University and renovate his residential house. His challenge is competition from wholesale traders who buy from farmers directly and eliminate him. Godfrey is requesting money to buy maize to sell.
