Juliet is 47 years of age, a resident of a Kampala suburb, married with 4 children who all attend school. Juliet has looked after her sister's son after she passed three years ago.

Juliet operates a boutique, which is situated in Mengo town, mainly dealing in ladies clothes. She started this business in 2003 when she realized that her family responsibilities where increasing rapidly, yet her husband’s income was not enough to support the entire family. So she basically started the business to help meet the growing demands of the family.

Juliet first borrowed a loan with Ugafode Microfinance Ltd (MDI) to pay college tuition for her sister’s son who is currently in his final year at Makerere University. She is very grateful to the funders who have enabled her to educate her sister's son since his first year at University.

Juliet needs a loan to further cater for the other children's education.
