Joy is a 23-year-old single mother living in Masindi, Uganda. When she became pregnant her parents decided not to pay her school fees and she had to venture into business to support her child. She got the initial capital from a financial institution and the business is very profitable despite challenges of price fluctuation and inadequate capital to meet the high demand.
She has dreams of building a house, educating her child and owning a wholesale shop. Joy is requesting a loan to buy general merchandise such as matchboxes and paraffin to sell.
