Kashozi Bahingi Twetungure Group, Bushenyi's story

T. Annet (shown inset as well as in the main photograph) is the leader of her lending group in Bushenyi. She is 32 years old, married, and has five children aged three to fourteen. For the past seven years, Annet has had a retail shop business in Nyamiko Kigoma trading center. She sells mostly general merchandise such as sugar, salt, soap, cooking oil and muffins. The sustainability of her business is mostly attributed to her good customer care – she is a very friendly woman – and the help of loans. Annet hopes to own the biggest and main shop in her village in order to increase sales and have an educated family. At the moment, she is requesting a loan to buy more stock for her shop.
