Enid is a hard working woman with two children living in Fort Portal, Uganda. She operates a bakery, sells porridge and trades in agricultural produce in order to earn a living. Being the good mother that she is, she desires to educate her children up to university, even though she did not go to school herself. Price fluctuations and inadequate capital are her major challenges, while her dream is to buy land and construct a house for residence. Enid is requesting a loan to buy land.
