Faridah is aged 28, a single mother of two children living in Masindi, Uganda. The responsibility of looking after them solely rests on her since her former husband got another family and her desire is to educate her children up to the University. She has a food production business and works 10 hours a day. She started the business 13 years ago after dropping out of school due to lack of school fees. She is a market vendor and is challenged by high transport costs and the rainy season while her business desire is to rent business premises and diversify her business to include a retail shop.
