Oliver is a single mother, aged 30. She lives in Kyotera town council. She describes herself as a hard-working and honest lady. She deals in charcoal selling, and she has been in this business since 2007. She started this business in order to get money to pay school fees for her daughter. She sells her products to residents of Kyotera town council.

She has borrowed 1,000,000 UGX, in order to buy more charcoal and buy some large bulbs to attract more grasshoppers . She sells them seasonally since they are a delicacy for many of her customers. Her dream is to enlarge these businesses, but she faces the problems of lack of enough capital and high taxes charged by the town council.
