That hinders its growth and expansion as well as her profits since she has to go shopping all the time. She is therefore requesting to be funded to bridge the gap.The loan of 2,500,000 UGX will help her buy stocks of garments in bulk and at a reduced rate.
Her neighbors commended her for being a hard-working, determined and supportive person in society.
