Teopista's story

Teopista K. lives in the Naguru neighborhood in the city of Kampala, Uganda. She is widowed and has four children, two of whom are in school.

Teopista has a business of selling yellow and sweet bananas. She has been in this business for over 10 years, and she works seven days out of every week. Teopista sells her products at the market, by means of retail.

The main business challenges for Teopista include competition and seasonality. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start selling on a wholesale basis only and to start buying from farmers directly.
