Business plan 
Grace sells raw food items like bananas, sweet potatoes, cassava pumpkins and sells milk from her cow. Grace sells all these items at her humble home that is just by the roadside of the main road going to Ggaba and this gives her business a lot of exposure since even those people passing by can always buy from her. Grace however says that her stock is a little less since her capital is also small and that is why she wants to take out a loan that will necessitate her to buy more items in bulk and capture a wider customer base hence helping her earn more money that she will use educate her children.
