Kashebeya K Tukorerehamwe Group B's story
29-year-old Eliisa takes exception to laziness and disorganization. The strong-willed and steadfast father of three reckons that these are counterproductive to anybody’s ambitions and goals. His preference is to steer clear of the aforementioned as he plies his pub business in Kihihi in the western part of Uganda. With that kind of attitude, he believes his business will stand the test of time. He has weathered many storms that have plagued his business, but he has been able to make the best out of each bad bargain. He sees a silver lining in every adversity, and he says no business is without a checkered experience. He says this enables one to strike a balance. At the pub, this good-humored businessman sells a variety of hard and soft beverages; to wit: beers, crude alcohol, sodas and local brew. Five years of experience in this business has provided him with many opportunities to learn and also to consolidate his achievements. On the face of it, the fact that his pub attracts many clients is a good sign that his business will last long and will notch up many more successes. This, by all accounts, is the 2nd time Eliisa's group has received a loan from Pearl Microfinance. Their repayment record is up to the mark. He says to take root in this business he relied on savings from his tea leaves sales trade. He has not dispensed with the tea business, as he says it acts as the second financial bow to his string. He also sells coffee, which is a highly lucrative business in Western Uganda. Eliisa says his weekly business sales revenue is to the tune of Uganda shillings 125,000. This loan, Eliisa says, is to give him the ability to purchase more crates of both hard and soft beverages to resell at his pub.
