Nuulu is 42 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala central region of Uganda. She is married and has six children. Four of her children are currently in school. For the past seven years, Nuulu has had a business of selling food (matooke, a meal made from green plantain) in the market.
To help expand her business, Nuulu has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase food for resale. With the help of the loan from BRAC, Nuulu hopes to generate greater profits and pay for her children's school fees.
In the future, Nuulu hopes to get a bigger working place to ease her work.
