Giradinah's story

Giradinah is 40 years old and married, with kids, six of whom are school going.

She has requested a loan of 1,500,000 UGX. She deals in agriculture, and also trading in matooke. When she gets the money, she wants to buy more matooke for trade and mulches for her plantation, and also pay school fees for her children.

She works for eight hours a day and six days a week. She started this business in 2006 to generate income to improve her family's standard of living. Her main clients are people around Furuma and Mitooma.

Her main challenge is limited capital and competition. She is very hard working and shrewd in business. Giradinah is pictured with her husband in their banana plantation.
