Gertrude's story

Gertrude, age 48, is a farmer. She lives with her husband and family in Fort Portal, Uganda. For the past 20 years, she has also operated a retail shop business to earn additional income. With the proceeds, she has managed to pay the school fees of her children, who are now enrolled in higher institutions of learning.
