Joseph is married with a family of six, one of whom is a dependent he inherited after the death of her guardian. He is one of the farmers whose hard work has enabled him to have a big coffee plantation that has served as a model to the rest of the farmers in and around his home area.

Joseph is requesting a loan for 1,200,000 UGX, which he will use to buy fertilizers and mulch for his plantation which is being greatly affected by soil erosion since his farm is in a hilly location. He has achieved a lot from his coffee sales, including paying some of his children’s school tuition up to the university level. His dream is to buy more land to plant more coffee for his children to manage after they have graduated since there are currently no available jobs.
