Vicent is 56 years old. He is married and has eight children. He is a farmer, growing pineapples on over two acres of land. He has earned a lot from this project, enabling him to send six of his children to school and to construct a permanent house for his family.

He is requesting a loan of 1,500,000 UGX in order to buy land and organic fertilizers for pineapple growing. The additional land and fertilizer will enable him to realize much revenue from the sales of his pineapples and to consistently provide for his family.
