Winnie is 16 years old and single. She lives in Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past three years, Winnie has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells local food, tea, water, and sodas.

Winnie requested a loan from BRAC Uganda for 500,000 Ugandan Shillings, which she will use to purchase a refrigerator to cool drinks. The loan will help Winnie to generate greater profits and increase her capital base. Winnie hopes that in the future she will be able to start an outside catering school.
