Twegatte Women's Group, Mukono's story
38-year-old N. Justine has reckoned on earnings from her ten-year-old retail shop in the heart of Kayiringuto trading center in Mukono to foster the welfare of her family. Since she took the reins of her business, she has gained enough leverage as her business, that for the most part deals in sugar, soft drinks and foodstuffs, has enabled her to support her five children’s education. This happily married mother was prevailed upon by close acquaintances to open up her own business. Before she ventured into her retail shop, she was a secondhand-clothes dealer. Justine has gone to extreme lengths to ensure her monthly earnings of 400,000 shillings are consolidated. In the wake of this success have been financial and other business operational problems that she has managed to stem the tide of. Justine has not lost sight of her desire to see her business gravitate to a wholesale franchise. With enough second thought, she has been brought to terms with the fact that this loan will come in handy in helping her to buy more retail stock like rice, sugar and crates of soda.
