A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more bananas to sell.


Rashid's story

Rashid is a thirty-seven-year-old married man with four children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He has been dealing in buying and selling bananas for many years. He started the business because there is a lot of demand for food as there is famine in most parts of Uganda. His hardship is high transport costs and his vision is to become a market leader in food distribution. Rashid needs the loan to buy more bananas to sell.
