I am Maurine Auma, I grew up in the village later came to the city. I am second child of my parents, we are five children but we become orphans while we were still too young. We taken care by our by relatives. I lucked many privileges compared to other kids my age. I have little education but the quest for better has not died. Have been in business for since I was eighteen, pushed by circumstances I became business oriented. My daily prayers has always been to own a food company.
The current business that I do and am in need of funds to grow until it becomes a food company. I started it 2017 by hawking only one product of soya that's soya drink. My main tool for marketing has been word of mouth and has been successful till now I have stall where I sell my products.I now sell over twenty products just to mention a few; soya drink, peanut butter, cinnamon powder, cayenne pepper powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, tumeric powder, honey, molasses, roasted ground nuts, fruit and health remedies juices,aloe vera and etc.
Have been depending to supplied then I pack and sell because I don't have my own machines.
It's been long and bumpy journey but so far so good, and I know when I get empowered financially my dream to have a food company will still be bright and valid.
I have a daughter who is in grade one. Have not completed her school fees balance and I would like to have a loan to pay, because at the moment my business can't afford to withdraw the full amount from it. The business might end up facing more episodes of financial crisis, which am not ready for that. I can manage bit by bit. By offering me the financial support will be great help. I pray that I will be able to pay back on due time.
