Jane Nalwoga is an entrepreneur and widow who lives in Kawala, Uganda, with her six children. When she lost her husband a few years back, Jane became the primary and sole caretaker of her children and had to navigate providing both financial and emotional support for them, amidst her own grief. She found a way to make ends meet, recycling plastic scrap by selling it to a plastics factory in town. It hasn’t been easy for Jane, especially as a single mother. At one point she worried if she would be able to keep her children in school. Everything began to change for Jane when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. When she joined, Jane received financial training and a loan to invest in her business. With her loan, Jane was able to purchase more plastic scrap from local businesses–with more scrap to sell to the plastics factory, Jane was able to increase her profits. Down the road, Jane dreams of saving up enough to buy a plot of land and build a house for her children.
