Donata is a 53-year-old married woman with four children who lives in Kasese, Uganda. Fourteen years ago she decided to venture into craft sales after assessing the demand both locally and internationally. Since then, Donata has reaped tangible benefits. Her business is strategically located on the way to Queen Elizabeth National Park and many tourists stop over to buy something from her. Her biggest business challenge is inadequate capital to meet customer demand.

Donata is requesting a loan to buy raw materials to make crafts to sell. In the future, she hopes to expand her business to new markets.
