Business plan 
Jane is one the few charcoal and fire wood traders in her area. She buys the charcoal from the charcoal burners in the nearby villages of Nakalanda, Mawoto, etc and then transports them to her home where her clients pick the charcoal from. Of recent she has also started trading off fire wood though she buys it from the mobile truck sellers and she buys in fewer quantities since she does not have enough capital to buy in bulk that is why Jane wants to take out a loan in order to buy fire wood in bulk. Jane says this will help her increase her profits that in return she will use to carter for her family’s needs and educate her children in fair schools.
Personal situation 
Jane was born in Sugu Mpaata and its where she studied from up to her senior three and then dropped out of school after since her father had passed away and her mother was too poor to educate her. She later got married though her husband passed away and when her husband passed away, she later sold off her cow to start a business.
