Edson is a 32-year-old man who has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX. He is married and blessed with five children.Pictured is Edson with his wife in their retail shop.

Edson is a hard working and honest man, and has a retail shop located in a trading centre in the area near his homestead which is his source of income. However, his challenge has been limited capital and he has approached UGAFODE for financial support to increase the volume of his purchases so that he can save on transport costs and also increase his profits. His dream is to expand his business to a greater volume so as to increase his profit margin. This will reduce his vulnerability and dependence on loans, and he will eventually become self-sustained. Edson therefore appreciates UGAFODE and Kiva for the financial support they have rendered to him.
