Christine is the wife of a banker. At 39 years old, she owns a bar in Karuguuza, Uganda, which she has operated for the last fifteen years. Though Christine encounters a challenge of retiring late from work, she hopes to see her business grow into a bigger bar and finally into an established hotel (restaurant) because, through the profits from her bar, she has been able to construct a commercial building to increase her family’s income. Christine plans to use the HOFOKAM loan to purchase more alcohol to sell in the bar and to add take-away food services, too.
