To accomplish her retail business plans, 35-year-old M. Safina has gone to extreme lengths to give a good, hard work account of herself in a highly competitive business genre for the last sixteen years in Central market –Jinja. Diligently and with time, she has gotten half way to the point where she envisaged she would be at the threshold of this business. She says she wanted to be self reliant, and at present, in many respects, she can bank on this business to solve most, if not all of her family’s needs.

Safina is a married woman with four kids. She also has a rental business. Approximately $45 is what she makes in a week. She is requesting this loan to be able to purchase more general merchandise retail stock such as sugar, soap, maize flour, etc. to resell.
