Amos is a 40-year-old married man with five children. He lives in Fort Portal, Uganda.

Amos trades in maize, and he also has a motorcycle-transport business in order to earn more income. Price fluctuations and inadequate capital to meet the high demand are his major business challenges, while his dream is to own a food store that can supply the region all year round.

Amos intends to use the loan to buy maize flour and rice to sell.
