Bakkiliza Development Group, Mukono's story

At the bottom left in the small photo is Fatumah M. who is profiled in the description. Fatumah also appears in the big group photo. She is a buoyant 21 year old who has ventured early into business. At her young age, Fatumah, by conventional standards, should still be in school. However, she decided to go against the societal grain. As such, she took root in a hair salon business almost two years ago in Kireka, Mukono district. Being single has, in a way, played into Fatumah’s hands, in that she has had no major responsibility to bear so far and, as such, she has built on her business experience. In the course of time, she has given her business the quality time and devotion it needs. Since the inception of her business, Fatumah has managed to steadily sustain her finances. On a monthly basis, her financial gains amount to 140,000 shillings. She credits her suave business skills as one factor which has kept her above the competition. Notwithstanding her successes, Fatumah envisages an even brighter future for herself if she can obtain a loan to sustainably expand her business.
