Business plan 
Gorretie owns a maternity clinic in Kisoga. Her clinic delivers pregnant women, offers family planning services and treats common illnesses like malaria, typhoid etc. She has spent two months in operation as she says the business was started through a partnership with one of her schoolmates also a trained medical worker with whom she worked with in The Aids support organization ‘TASO’. She is grateful that she is able to help other people in her community and she believes that through her business she will be able to help her community have a healthy productive lifestyle. As a nurse when she started the business the costs of operation were higher than the customer turn up and in most cases some of the items she uses are bought. This has enabled with more income hence constructing more rentals.
