T. Beatrice is an ambitious entrepreneur with a food store. Her shop is located along Bundibugyo Road in Kisenyi (Rwengoma A2 Zone). She started with little capital in 2007, that is, a few bags of maize and cassava. As the business went on, slowly, she took the maize and cassava for grilling and the stock increased with maize flour and cassava flour. Further, she added millet flour due to the fact that it is jointly demanded with cassava flour as a mixture for a meal.

Beatrice is requesting the loan to add inventory and include beans in her business since people love them as a sauce for meals. And more so in the rainy season, the prices tend to increase which may affect her profits, so she wants to stock up in advance, that is, purchase maize, millet, cassava, and beans in large quantity for her business expansion. Her dream is to see her business be successful.
