Business plan 
Teopister is a fire wood and raw food seller; she buys her raw food like bananas, sweet potatoes, etc from the farmers at a cheaper cost and then transports them to stall in Ggaba market where she sells them off. Teopister also buys fire wood from the mobile truck sellers since she does not have a license to cut down any tree. Teopister says that of recent the demand for her food and fire wood items has increased since most people buy from her so her items get over very quickly compared to other people who are in the same business. Teopister says that she now wants to take out a loan such that she can increase her stock and be able to supply her customers with the right quantity of items that they need instead of having to give excuses like she has been doing. Teopister says this will help her earn more profits that she will use to help her cater for her children
Personal situation 
Teopister was born in a humble village called Nkokonjeru which is found in Ntenjeru sub-county. Teopister says that she attained formal of education upto senior one because she was just in senior one when her parents passed away and her Aunt who took over was unable to educate her because she was very poor. Teopister later got married to Mwamule Saddick in 2006. She has six children and her husband has negative attitude towards family planning. Teopister says though her husband is supportive and caring his income is too little to provide everything. They decided to join hands and start up for her food selling business as they are crop farmers also to sell surplus and cater for their children’s needs.
