A loan of $600 helped to buy maize and beans to sell.


John's story

John is a 42-year-old married man with six children living in Kagadi, Uganda. For the past 10 years, he has operated a produce business, dealing primarily in groundnuts. He started by farming, built capital after good harvests, and decided to start his current business. He likes this business because it has a short value chain. He faces a problem of price fluctuations and inadequate capital, which hinders his business growth. He would like to educate his children, build a good house, and expand his business to other markets. In a bid to earn more profits, he has diversified his business to include maize and beans, since they have a ready market, and it is for this reason that he is requesting a loan.
