Robinah is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy beer, soda, and local brew to sell. She is a hardworking woman, who has been operating a bar in Hoima, Uganda, for the past eight years. The high cost of rent and inadequate capital to meet the high demand are her major business challenges.

Being the good mother that she is, she desires to educate her children up to the University level, and also to set up sustainable income-generating activities to secure their future. Her dream is to own a modern bar in the center of town.
