Avis is a hard-working young man. He is 22 years old and operates a mechanical workshop in Kakoba, a suburb of Mbarara municipality.

Avis lost both parents at the age of 18, when he had just completed his senior four. After his parents' death, he could not continue with his studies due to lack of money for school fees. But because he is innovative, he started volunteering at his uncle’s workshop and later he learned how to repair radios, computers, and other household appliances to earn a living for himself and his brothers.

Avis has requested a loan of 1,000,000 UGX to buy machines for his workshop to help him in his work and to upgrade the workshop to a better standard.
