Salama's story

Salama is a female Ugandan aged 57 years old, and a resident of Jinja district. Salama is a divorcee with three children. She is a business woman dealing in a number of businesses, ranging from the sale of food stuffs, charcoal, and water. She does enjoy her businesses since she operates within the vicinity of her home.

A dedicated woman, Salama separated with her man nine years ago due to negligence of basic necessities and provisions by her children’s father. She embarked on selling food stuffs to earn a living and also educate her children, who are now big and in secondary schools. They also help her with her businesses after school.

She has sought a financial facility of 4,000,000 UGX to help her boost her businesses and also expand on her charcoal stall since the charcoal she stores is scarce and in very high demand by people living around her home stead.
