Rose, 38 years old, has operated a grocery store in Lugazi for the past 5 years. The happily married mother of 5 says she began this business with the inspiration of her husband. Before that, she farmed. She still engages in farming but it is now subsidiary to her grocery store. Rose says she is able to sell some of the crops she grows on her farm, such as groundnuts and pineapples. She also sells all sorts of snacks, jackfruit, soft drinks, apples, etc. Rose earns weekly sales profits of UGX 150,000. She intends to use this Kiva loan to purchase more jackfruit, apples, soft drinks and other green fruits to resell.
