Yafesi is a 37-year-old with 8 children living in Kagadi, Uganda. For ten years, he has been in business trading in local brew. At first he would buy from other traders, but later he bought land and planted bananas, which he uses as a raw material to distill. He also continues to buy from other traders, since demand is high. With the income he has earned, he has been able to pay school fees for his children and to plant more bananas. He started this business after realizing that farming alone could not support his vast family. Yafesi is requesting a loan to buy local brew to sell.
