Margret has a private primary school located in Hoima Uganda. She started the school in 2010 after realizing the need for a better standard school due to the poor performance of government aided Primary Schools. She gets side income from selling clothes. She desires to see her school built with permanent structures and acquiring more land for expansion, even though limited capital and high license fees affect her cash flow.
Margret is acquiring a loan to buy roofing materials, such as iron sheets, timber and nails for the school.
