Flavia Namyalo is a hardworking single mother raising her six children in Nkoowe, Uganda. For several years, Flavia has sold vegetables, like tomatoes, to customers in her community. Each morning, she wakes up early to source produce from local farmers to sell that day. Despite her hard work, it hasn’t been easy for Flavia; in fact, there was a time she worried she wouldn’t be able to make ends meet to provide for the daily needs of her children. Everything began to change for Flavia when a friend encouraged her to join Opportunity International. After she joined, Flavia received financial training and a loan to invest in her business. Thanks to her training, Flavia identified that the biggest market opportunity is selling to other traders. With her loan, Flavia was able to purchase more tomatoes at a lower wholesale cost and sell to traders in and around her community. Down the road, Flavia plans on expanding her business even more and sending her children to college. Thanks to her loan, Flavia can continue to grow her passion for entrepreneurship while providing for the educational endeavors of her children.
