Johnson's story

Johnson is a married man living in a rural area in Swazi-Kyamuhunga in Bushenyi District with five children and one additional dependent orphaned after the death of the father. In order to support his family Johnson has been burning and selling charcoal as his major source of income for the last two years. He also does some farming, which gives him more income to meet the needs of his family.

Johnson has requested a loan to buy a piece of a forest where he will get firewood for burning charcoal. He has future aspirations of acquiring a machine for quicker tree cutting. Johnson is hopeful that his future will be bright.
