Dorothy is a thirty-eight-year-old single mother of four children living in Kasese, Uganda. Thirteen years ago, she decided to venture into cassava flour selling after assessing the high demand for food in the area.
Price fluctuation and unpredictable weather changes affect her sales, while her dream is to set up a food store that deals in a variety of food items, such as millet and maize among others.
Dorothy intends to use the loan to buy cassava flour to sell.
