A loan of $3,075 helped a member to buy more goats to sell.

Bubare Bakyara Tukwatanise Group, Ibanda's story

For the last thirty years, 52-year-old N. Kiviri Valeria, has been selling goats and doing mobile catering in Jubilee to support her family. The friendly mother of five reveals that she can make up to 180,000 UGX a week and her monthly estimates are even higher.

By her own account, what makes Kiviri’s business drive that winning edge is the fact that she values that virtue called customer care.

Kiviri wants to see to it that all her children are well educated and she says a loan will be her trump card in achieving this. She needs a loan to be able to buy more goats to sell. She is a very friendly, cooperative and hardworking lady.
