Caroline comes from a small trading center called Kambuga in Western Uganda.

She has always loved agriculture–having grown up working with her parents on the family farm–and she sees it as essential to who she is.

When she heard about EARTH through a local community library, its entrepreneurial focus especially excited her, and she dreams of becoming “a great entrepreneur.” In addition, she promises to use her “skills and knowledge to develop and contribute to the well-being of my country and the world.”
