Her oldest child is a civil engineer, her second child is a teacher and her third child is studying medicine at Mulago Hospital. The youngest is still in school; in senior five.

Edina has been able to pay school fees for her children's education with the money she earns from her restaurant business. When she started getting loans from Pearl Microfinance, she was able to add a retail shop to her restaurant and open a business keeping cattle.

With the money she earns, she is able to pay her workers who help to feed and milk the cows. With the remaining funds, she and her husband are constructing a residential home.

The group is sitting at Edina's home. Behind is the new house that is being constructed. One of the workers is holding a spade.
