Caleb is a 26-year-old ambitious man living in Kagadi, Uganda. Due to his desire to become self-employed he set up a nursery school because he never wanted to roam around the streets looking for jobs with the current unemployment levels in the country.

His major challenge is inadequate capital to provide all the facilities he needs for the school while his dream is to have a model school in the district. Caleb intends to use the loan to buy land to expand the school since the enrollment increases every year.
