Lweza Intergrated Group, Kampala's story

N. Nulu is a hard working and devoted lady who has had a retail shop business in Lweza for six years. She is married with three children who are all in secondary school. From her shop sales, Nulu, highlighted at lower left in the photo that accompanies this profile, is able to make 125,000 Ugandan shillings as weekly profits, although she is faced with challenges like the late payments of debtors.

This is Nulu’s first time to seek for a loan from Kiva field partner Pearl Microfinance. She hopes to expand her shop, and in future to turn it into a wholesale shop. She also hopes to have a reputable and educated family so that they all become self reliant. She needs this loan to help with increasing stock at her shop, and hopes it will result in increased profits.
