Penninah is 37 years old and is a resident of Nansana, Uganda. She is a widow and all three of her children attend school.

Penninah operates a bar and secondhand clothing business to earn money to meet her household needs. She started the bar in 2011 to boost her income after the death of her husband in order to give hope to her fatherless children.

Penninah's bar is hindered by her lack of capital which prevents her from acquiring standard drinks. She is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to add stock to her bar and clothing business. By stocking her bar with a variety of drinks, she will be able to beat her competition and attract more customers. The profits will help her pay for her children's tuition.

Penninah is a hardworking woman. Her dream is to see her children complete higher-level schooling and have her own house so she can reduce her expenses.
