Edina
Edina is a 37-year-old married woman with eight children living in Kasese, Uganda. She has been in a retail business for five years and with the proceeds, she has been able to pay school fees for her children. She hopes to educate her children to higher levels of learning and to grow her business into a wholesale shop. However, bad debts and lack of enough capital are big challenges. Edina will use the loan to buy rice, maize and beans to sell.
