Gerifati's story

Gerifati is a 32-year-old married man with 5 children (16,14,12,9, and 3 years old), four of whom are attending different schools. He deals agricultural produce, with a particular focus on beans, maize, and coffee. He works 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, and has been in this produce business since 2000. The lower capital requirements, coupled with a desire to earn a living, are the reasons why Gerifati is in this business.
He is an agriculturalist who grows bananas, beans, and maize, from which he gains additional income to support his family. He hopes to use the loan to buy fertilizers and manure for his banana plantations. He normally sells his products to traders from the city and neighboring trading centers.
His hope and dream is to become the leading supplier of Matooke in the Rakai district. However, he faces a challenge of limited capital and poor weather conditions, which affect his output and profits, respectively.
He is described as an honest and hard working businessman, and asks lenders to keep up with the good services offered.
