Everlyne is a 30-year-old single mother of two children living in Kasese, Uganda. She has been selling fresh foods for a year. She also farms to earn extra income. She started the business in order to raise money to educate her children. The high rate of perishability and inadequate capital affect her business growth. Her dreams are to have a quality food store with refrigerators and to educate her children to attain degrees as minimum qualification. Everlyne intends to use the loan to pay school fees for her children.
