Esau's story

Esau, age 43, is married with 6 children, ages 18, 15, 12, 9, 6 and 3. Only three attend school. Esau also stays with 2 orphans.

Esau is in agriculture and he sells tomatoes which he grows himself. He started doing this business in 1993 in order to earn income to support his household and meet their basic needs. He has approached Ugafode for a loan of 500,000 UGX to purchase pesticides to spray his tomatoes since it is his main source of income.

Esau describes himself as hardworking and honest. His main challenges include seasonality and weather, which affects his business. Esau is also challenged by the perishability of his products. He dreams of educating all his children and building a good house.
