Samuel's story

Samuel is a permanent resident of Rwenkuba of the Bushenyi district. He is married with 5 children and lives with 2 of his sisters' children, as she is unable to pay for their fees, so he is giving her a hand. He did not go far in his studies and hence started to fend for himself and the family when he was still young. Being pushed by the need to survive, he started banana farming on a small scale on his family's land that his parents allowed him to cultivate on. Because he is hard working, he has used his small savings to buy even more land where he is constructing a house. This business has grown, giving him an opportunity to support his family and dependents. He is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to complete the house that he has been constructing; it will accommodate his family, including his aged parents. In the photograph is Samuel and his father. Samuel is the one in the blue, long-sleeved shirt.
