Margret is a hardworking married woman living in Kagadi, Uganda. For ten years she has been running a retail shop. She started the business after a fruitful maize harvest that she sold to nearby schools.
Inadequate capital is affecting the business, but her dreams are to expand her business into a wholesale one and to educate her five children. Margret is requesting a loan to buy sugar, soap and cooking oil to sell.
