A loan of $1,200 helped increase grocery stock.


Rose's story

Rose is 40 years old. She operates a retail shop in the suburbs of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. She is married with three children. Her first child is a 21-year-old girl studying nursing. Her second child is a 19-year-old boy in high school, and her third child is a 16-year-old boy, also in high school.


Rose wants a loan of US $1200 to increase the stock of her business. The business supports the family and pays for school fees, food, medication, and other expenses.


The stock in the business is small due to low capital. Rose wants to increase the stock so that she can turn the shop into a wholesale grocery in one year's time. She developed her business skills through the trainings organized by SAO MFI.


Her daily sales are US $35 per day, and she wants to increase her turnover to US $80 per day in order to increase the profitability of her grocery store. The loan will help her to realize her dreams and the untapped potential within her.
