Christine's Group's story

Christine K. is a member of the Kuteesa group in Luleeka. She is married with 8 children and cares for 2 other dependents. Two so far have completed school. She is proud that through Pearl she has been able to finance her smoked fish business which she sells to people mostly of Koba and Nabutiri as well as to pay the school fees for her children. She has done this business for over ten years. Because of the fluctuating prices of fish, four months ago Christine diversified and opened a charcoal selling business. She also grows tomatoes for sale. In the future, she dreams of buying charcoal in bulk and supplying Lugazi where prices are higher. She attributes her success to the quality of her fish, her reasonable pricing and the availability of charcoal at all times.
