Business plan 
Penninah buys trees from tree/ forest owners within Gonve and the neighbouring villages, cuts and chops timber plus fire wood from them and supplies to the schools and restaurants around gonve and katosi trading centres. Peninnah explains that of recent there is high demand for firewood since schools have just opened however her capital is little and the trees are now a bit distant from the village so she needs to transport the wood to her home because this is where her customers always pick it from. She wants a loan so that she can purchase more trees and also transport the wood from the neighboring villages to her stores at home. She also rears rabbits, weaves mats and baskets which she sells, gets money that she uses to pay her children’s school fees.
Personal situation 
Peninnah narrates that she is a born of Bugerere Kayunga district. It is where she grew up from and studied from up to senior one and she dropped out of school because her parents could not afford to pay school fees for her education due to their very poor financial status. She later got married to a man who brought her to Gonve, Katosi, however he passed on and left her a widow with orphaned children.
