Levekato is a married woman with 5 children, living in Kagadi, Uganda. Fifteen years ago she decided to trade in clothes in order to support her growing family. She started as a market vendor and, after accumulating enough capital, she rented a house and set up a boutique. Her love for fashion also prompted her to start the business. She mainly sells men shirts.

Inadequate capital to meet the different tastes and preferences of her customers is her major challenge. Her dream is to own a fashion school.

Levekato is requesting a loan to buy clothes to re-sell.
