A loan of $3,150 helped a member restocking her retail shop with more goods.

Umoja Group, Mukono's story

N. Margaret is 59, divorced, and has two children, aged 24 and 19, who are both at university. She also takes care of other siblings and orphans. Margaret has had a retail shop in Kiwanga for 4 years and although she has debtors to her business, she is able to make 900,000 Ugandan shillings (about $46 US) as profits a month.

She says that her supplementary sales help win more customers to her shop and she hopes to expand it further as well as have good health for her children. This is her second loan with her group and she would like to restock her business--especially now that it is a festive season and the consumption level is so high.
