Zaina is a hardworking single mother living in Masindi, Uganda. For eight years she has been a farmer, but she also operates a retail shop in order to raise money to meet her daily expenses. Inadequate capital and price fluctuations are her major challenges, while her dream is to become a model farmer in the village and to own a wholesale shop. Zaina intends to use this loan to buy farm inputs such as seeds and fertilizers.
