Angellina is a 30-year-old woman living in the town of Masindi, Uganda. She sells cereals in the market and she has been in business since 2010.
A good mother that she is, Angellina desires to educate her children to attain degrees as minimum qualification even though she did not have a chance to attend school.
Weather changes and inadequate capital affect her business. Her desire is to acquire permanent business premises, as she currently has a market stall, and also to expand her business to new areas. Angellina will use the loan to buy cereals such as maize and millet to sell.
