Bushenyi Tuhumurizane Group's story

M. Naume is a very determined lady with a dream to achieve more in life. She is thirty-six years old and married with three children, aged six, ten and seventeen. All are in school with only the eldest in secondary school, while the others are in the primary section. Naume also helps to care for an orphan with responsibility for the child’s general upkeep. She has a grocery business which she started in 1998. From that time until 2002 she was sharing the stall premises with a friend, until she became independent. Some of the goods she sells at her stall are green bananas used for making local dishes, tomatoes, greens and other fresh produce. Although Naume is succeeding with her business, she is usually faced with a few challenges: she has to search for good produce from village to village; she needs to be aware of the variation in demand for her produce; she has to shop at night for produce because it has to be displayed in her stall very early for her customers. Naume is grateful that her stall is strategically positioned in Bushenyi main market because as a result, she is able to generate a weekly profit of $56. Her success also comes from the fact that she sells good quality produce. The loans have helped her always to have enough stock for her customers and still supply good quality. Naume needs a loan to help with introducing the sale of chicken and millet to her current business.
