Rossette's story

Rossette is a married woman who operates a grocery shop on the outskirts of Mbarara town.

Rosette has been sustaining her business activities through her own efforts and with the help of the loans from UGAFODE.

She is seeking 1,000,000 UGX to buy more stock of vegetables, tomatoes, onions, cabbages, and condiments for sale. She is hoping for an increase in sales as well as her household income.

Rosette dreams of saving enough to provide a secure future for her family. Thank you!
