Morgan is a 33-year-old government employee who works as a primary school teacher. A father to two children, he is married and lives in Kagadi, Uganda. He was inspired to join the teaching profession by his urge to serve the nation and he felt there was no better way but to teach the children of his nation. He owns a retail shop to supplement his meager salary.
He wishes to venture into commercial farming since food security is one of the country's major emphases in the next five years. Morgan intends to use the loan to buy land for farming.
