She is a single mother with two children aged nine and seven years. At 27 years, Doreen looks after her family in terms of their welfare and school fees for the children with whom she lives with in a rented house in Masindi, Uganda.

It’s in Masindi that Doreen operates a bar in which she sells beer, sodas and water to earn a living. She has been in the business for the last three years and she says she started very small but now she can see there is some progress in stock and activity though she maintains that competition is very high.
