Charles is a farmer growing coffee in Kyanyaruhango in Kyanzaire Kashenshero in Mitooma District. He started farming in 2004 with the hope of getting a clear source of income so that he would able to provide for his family members. He is a married man and the father of ten children who have all finished school except the last three. He also has a bee-keeping project in Kashenshero in Mitooma District and this gives him additional money which he use to cater for the needs of his family. His clients are mainly coffee traders in the same area from which he operates and these have supported him greatly since they assure him of a market for his coffee. He has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to be able to buy mulch for the coffee plantation so that the harvests can be better than the usual quantities harvested which would result into higher incomes. He is mainly challenged by the weather which hits his coffee plantation hard but he believes that with the loan, if given, he will have the soil fertility boosted and will be in a position to earn much more and hence be in position to educate all his children (the last three) which has always been his wish, and the reason why he works hard despite the old age bracket he is in now.
