Jean Bosco, a potato farmer, is 25 years old and married. He has a one week old child. He also has two other people under his care. He was born in Rwanda and has attended six years of secondary school.

He joined ACB Ltd. in 2009, but this is actually his first loan. With this loan, he is going to buy seed and to pay for labor. He does not expect any difficulty in the repayment of this loan.

To increase his agricultural capacity, he is going to engage in modern farming techniques and use chemical fertilizers. He is also going to seek markets everywhere to sell his crop.

His goal is to become a potato supplier for the area, especially for secondary schools. For his family, he is going to ensure their well-being and build them a house. Besides being a farmer, he is also a welder.
