Grace Angwen is a widow living in Oyam, Uganda, where she cares for her six children and two additional children she’s taken into her family. Grace and her family live near the Kamdini trading center, where Grace sells fruit to provide for her children. Despite her hard work, Grace has faced financial challenges because demand for fruit is seasonal. It is expensive to buy produce in the off-season, and Grace cannot make a good profit when she has to travel far for business. Everything began to change for Grace and her family when she discovered Opportunity International and decided to join the organization. After completing financial literacy training, Grace received her first loan, which she used to purchase additional fruit from another town. The small financial boost has had a multiplier effect for Grace’s business, and she now earns three times as much per day as she did before she partnered with Opportunity. The loan also enabled Grace to purchase a plot of land and build a house for her family. In the future, Grace’s dream is to educate her children up through the university level.
