Patrick Muwonge from Uganda message
Throughout my childhood up to date, I have mostly seen Japanese used cars in our country uganda.
The market of Japanese used cars has made it so comfortable for car owners to be proud of their cars from Japan. This has been due to easy access of spare parts, easy maintanance and servicing as mastered by many mechanics whose practise has been mostly with Japanese cars. Due to these factors, many customers always want to be even more associated with Japanese cars. In addition to that Japanese cars have created several jobs in our country, both directly and indirectly. for example car brokers, spare parts sellers, car maintanance and services , plus also car cleaners. Japanese cars make the biggest percentage of cars in the country.
There is an emerging class of middle class working youth and the market projections are on the rise because Japanese cars form 90% of customers’ choice due to their easy maintance, low fuel consumption and affordability.
I requested for a Toyota townace pick up in this competition. This is simply because our country’s economic backbone is agriculture. I am equally a farmer and would use the truck to transport my produce to the market in time and be able to sell and get income without delay. Transportation is a major challenge with most farmers in the country. Farming is done upcountry and all farmers target the biggest market that is in the capital city of Uganda. Transportation alone takes about 30% of the farmer’s profits as we have to hire cars to take the produce to the market. It makes it even harder with perishables and vegetables as they get spoilt at times before reaching the market. Owning a truck would make me solve all these problems on my farm and so would be the case i other farmers owned their trucks. I believe I would inspire many farmers to have such cars or any similar or better cars due to their advantage of a wide bed that allows loading of many produce from their farms.
