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.
Goretty is an orphan. Neither did she have a chance to see her father nor mother. She was raised by a relative. She is separated and lives at her biological home where she picked up the broken pieces of her life and started out looking for ways to feed her 4 children. She runs a restaurant which is the major source of livelihood overtime for survival.
