John is a married man, aged 33 years, with four children who are all school going. He and his wife sell eggs in Kagadi town, a business they operate six days a week. He also vends newspapers as an additional source of income for the family.

He wants a loan of 1,000,000 shillings to add to his egg business and be in a position to increase the income for the family, and also meet the increasing demand for the eggs.

John's major challenges are the business of eggs being delicate to handle and the limited capital compared to the demand. He hopes to buy a vehicle for transporting the eggs, using the proceeds from the business as it is growing.
