Gift trades in cosmetics within the town center in Lyantonde. Her husband started the business for her after the family had expanded and the expenses were too many for him to meet alone. She uses the money from the shop to provide for the daily family needs and clothing for the children while her husband pays rent, tuition, and bills.

Gift is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase cosmetics to sell. She anticipates that the shop will become the leading seller of all cosmetics in that area. Pictured is Gift with her husband in the shop.
