Charles's story

Charles is a 56-year-old married man with 18 children, eight of whom attend school. He lives in Bundibugyo, Uganda. Charles runs a rental and agriculture business and has been able to use his proceeds to pay school fees for his children. Three of his children have now graduated and he has been able to set up businesses for his children who refused to go to school. Charles's major business challenges are unpredictable weather and price fluctuations that impact his business.

Charles is requesting a loan to pay school fees for his children. His dream is to be the leading cocoa producer and to educate his children through university.
