Business plan 
Florence is one of the few coffee traders in her area. She buys only raw coffee beans from the coffee farmers in her area since the raw ones are cheap compared to the dried ones. Florence then drys the coffee and then later she packs in sacks and takes it to the coffee factory where she sells it. Florence says that at the moment the raw coffee is not fully matured and since she wants to keep her business running, she wants to engage in buying dry coffee though its expensive and that is why she wants to take out a loan and be able to buy the coffee in bulk. Florence says this will help her keep her business in running and she will also earn more profits that she will use to educate her children.
Personal situation 
Florence was born in Kajjansi on Entebbe road and its where she studied from up to her primary five and then dropped out of school since her parents did not have enough money. She later got married and her husband brought her to Kalagala.
