Business plan 
Teddy sells raw food such as bananas, sweet potatoes, cassava and pumpkins. She also sells fire wood that she buys from mobile truck sellers. Teddy sells all these items at her humble home that is just by the roadside of the road going to Sugu and this gives her business a lot of exposure since even those people passing by can always buy from her. Teddy however says that her stock is a little less since her capital is also small and that is why she wants to a loan that will help her to buy more items in bulk and capture a wider customer base hence helping her earn more money that she will use educate her child.
Personal situation 
Teddy was born in Kawango Nkozi and studied from Nakibanga primary school and Kayabwe secondary school. Teddy says her parents ran short of money for further education. Teddy conceived from home and her boyfriend dumped her after realizing that she had conceived. Teddy’s mother gave her capital to start selling firewood and raw food to Ggaba market.
