Najjembe Group 1, Lugazi's story

Veronica L. is a hard-working and devoted lady with a vibrant business selling fruits and vegetables in the Najjembe market. She has a stall in the main market that is stocked with tomatoes, onions, mangoes, oranges, pineapples and other produce. She buys fruit and vegetables mostly from farmers in the surrounding villages at a lower price than she pays at the big markets in Kampala and at farm trucks. Veronica is married with 8 children, as she takes care of her siblings in the village. Veronica needs a loan to be able to buy more produce for resale.
