Business plan 
Scovia a fish monger says that she gets her fish from Luwero a fishing site after Katoosi landing site. She deals in dry tilapia fish and she buys them at prices ranging from 4,000/= to 9, 500/= and sells at 6,000/= to 14,000/=. She does shopping once in a week and preserves her fish by smoking them in a well built local oven that uses firewood. For the tailoring business, she wants to add cloth materials because she is amidst many schools yet she always get many orders though she cannot deliver but after getting the loan, she hopes to get many school contracts to make uniforms and fulfill them. She expects the loan to help her boost her business and cut on transportation costs because always she buys in small quantities.
