Sofia is 35 years old. She is single and has been dealing in timber for the last 13 years. She started this business because it seemed lucrative. She has borrowed 3,000,000 UGX to buy more timber in preparation for the end of the year when people do a lot of construction.

Her dream is to complete her own house and stop renting. Her challenge is that the business tariffs are sometimes prohibitive.
