Gerald is a thirty-three-year-old married man with four children living in Kasese, Uganda. Five years ago, he decided to venture into the sale of cassava flour in order to increase his income sources. He also sells fish to supplement the business and with the proceeds he has been able to pay school fees for his children.
He lacks permanent operational premises as he moves from one market place to the other and has inadequate capital to meet the high demand. His dream is to own permanent business premises. Gerald intends to use the loan to buy cassava flour to sell.
