Sylivia's story

Sylivia is a hardworking professional teacher with a zeal to especially teach the young ones. She is pictured at her school (Modern Infants School).

Sylivia is the single mother of three children and she looks after a total of four people with whom she lives in a rented house in Fort Portal, Uganda. She says she is working so hard to see to it that she constructs her own residential house so as to shift from renting.

Sylivia has a nursery school and also a retail shop which she has operated for five years. She started the nursery school as a voluntary project then started collecting a little money as fees from those parents who could afford it. For the retail shop, she started with very little capital but which is now increasing in stock with time.

Sylivia says she faces a challenge of delays in the payment of school fees and also defaulters. She expects to see her businesses grow over time as she struggles hard with work. She intends to use the loan funds to construct a wooden classroom for her nursery school and also to purchase sugar, rice, maize floor, soap, and soft drinks for her retail shop.
