Aisha is a 51-year-old single parent living in Kamwenge, Uganda. She operates a restaurant that she started ten years back. She started by selling only tea and later advanced to selling food also. She faces a challenge of price fluctuations and inflation of food prices and also the increasing prices of charcoal and firewood plus high rental charges.
Aisha's dream is to educate her children, build a permanent home, buy a plot in Kamwenge, hire employees to help expand her business and move to a more permanent location. She needs the loan to pay rent for her business premises.
