Jubilee Tukore Group's story
Saidat is a member of Jubilee Tukore located in Ibanda town. This is a group consisting mainly of women running small businesses such as street vendors, restaurants, second hand clothing and agriculture. Saidat’s trouble came in 1995 when she lost her husband and she was left with the responsibility of looking after four children. She then joined the group and started selling second hand clothes which has sustained her. She has now started a second business of selling pancakes to the nearby schools. Saidat's main challenge is harsh weather since most of her work consists of selling from door to door. She has now applied for a loan to expand her second hand clothing business.
