Joyce is widowed with five children. Three of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family (her sister and brother). She has a restaurant business and has been in this business for 10 years, selling to all categories of people on retail and is able to work from home.

Joyce has applied for a loan of 500,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDTSACCO to buy more bunches of bananas, cassava, beef, sweet and Irish potatoes and cooking oil. In addition to the restaurant business, she is also a peasant farmer. She works from her home seven days a week.

Her major business challenge includes seasonality and ever-increasing prices of commodities in Uganda. She aspires to become a wholesaler and also to build rental rooms.
