Jolly is a shrewd 58-year-old single mother who has two dependents who she pays school fees for. She offers services in the form of rentals to earn a living and to pay school fees. Her main clients are low-income earners who cannot afford rent for upscale Kampala. Having been built way back in 1985, the rental properties are no longer up to the current standard and she would like to renovate them so that they can be more habitable for her tenants. Her dream is to turn them into a daycare for children of working mothers who have no maids if she gets enough funds. Her main challenge is competition.
