Maali is 38 years old; he is married and has five children, all of whom attend school. He is a peasant farmer, involved in the growing of onions and tomatoes in the outskirts of Kagadi. Maali has been in the business of agriculture since 1998, and it is his major source of income.

Maali wants a loan of 300,000 shillings (UGX). He will use the loan to pay school fees for his children, because he has just planted and expects the harvest after three months. His major challenges are the seasonality of the agricultural products and the price fluctuations for them, in the market. His dream is to educate his children until they reach higher institutions of learning, so that they can have a better life than his.
