A loan of $800 helped to buy sugar, soap and salt to sell.


Yosofu's story

Yosofu is a twenty-six-year-old married man with one child, living in Kasese, Uganda. He operates a retail shop and has been in business for three years. He started the business after realizing that farming is seasonal and thus cannot be depended on to meet his family's daily expenses. Like all good and responsible fathers, his desire is to educate his children to attain degrees as a minimum qualification. Price fluctuation and unpredictable weather changes affect his business growth while his plans are to venture into mechanized agriculture and trade in wholesale. Yosofu intends to use the loan to buy sugar, soap and salt to sell.
