Business plan 
Rovisa is a charcoal seller, she buys her charcoal from the mobile truck sellers since she always buys few charcoal bags and thus they always sell to her expensively and thus she is not able to make more profits than she would have if she had bought directly from the charcoal burners that is why she wants to take out a loan and be able to buy charcoal in bulk from the charcoal burners and thus make more profits that she will use to educate her last born child since she is the only one attending school currently and also to cater for the family needs.
Personal situation 
Rovisa was born in Ssozi and she studied upto primary seven and she dropped out of school because of money for school fees. Rovisa says she worked as a house maid for a while but she became tired of it then she got a boy friend who married her. She says he gave a piece of land cultivation and she later sold off her surplus food which she used to buy animals for rearing and charcoal selling business.
