Wilberforce is 45-year-old, married man with seven children. He is hard-working and creative. He deals in coffee farming; he has about five acres of land on which he grows coffee to sell to nearby traders. He has been doing this business since his childhood. The business has helped him educate his children and construct for them a good shelter.

Wilberforce would like a loan of 2,000,000 UGX to buy a generator to pump water in his plantation and fight against the dry season, which has left many people in tears. He is challenged mainly by weather and also traders who offer less for his coffee. His dream is to see all his children be educated and to buy a processing machine to improve the quality of the coffee he sells.
