She is a tea farmer in rural Kyamuhunga and she gives this business a maximum of 6 hours per day. She also has a small retail shop in the same area which she concentrates on when she is not in the tea business. She started growing tea so she could be able to have a clear source of income. She would like to use the 1,000,000 UGX to buy fertilizer for her tea garden. Her clients are mainly the tea traders in the area and she hopes to educate her children using the money she gets from the business.
