Christine runs a small fish shop in Kalengo, Uganda, and has four children at a nearby school.
"Before, life was quite difficult. My business did not enable me to meet basic needs for my family. I had to do tough manual labour in the community to support my earnings.
"The VSLA has greatly helped me to expand my struggling fish business to selling vegetables too. I have been able to save and begin constructing a commercial house to trade from. My dream is to finish the house so that I am able to conduct business and rent out the other rooms."
