N. Zauja operates a class C drug shop at the Bwole taxi park in the district of Bugiri. As she must now replenish her stock, she will use the loan to purchase additional antibiotics, quinine, chloroquine, omeprazol, nancoprazol and other items.
Manmaganda is happily married and has 3 children, ages 6-10. Her children attend primary school within the district. Her business enables her to give her husband a hand in providing for the family's needs. Her greatest ambition is to operate a class A drug shop, that would be licensed to sell all types of drugs. That would definitely result in a positive impact to her income. With this future prospect, she hopes to offer her family a better standard of living.
