Paul is a twenty-eight-year old man with three children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He has been in the agriculture business since 2008. He also gets income from his retail shop, which he started after realizing that farming alone could not help him provide the basics for his family, due to its seasonal nature.

The high cost of rent and price fluctuations are his major challenges, while his dream is to trade in wholesale.

Paul is requesting for a loan to buy general merchandise such as soap and salt to sell.
