Charles is a 48-year-old hardworking married man with five children living in Kamwenge, Uganda. He practices farming as his main source of income alongside livestock production as his side income. He started this business to earn a living and look after his family. Charles is challenged by price fluctuations that lead to a low market for his products but hopes that his business will improve to better standards and he will be able to build a permanent house.
He is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers and seedlings for his gardens.
