Balibaseka Development Group, Mukono's story

N. Christine, shown at the top left in the small photo, also appears in the big group photo as the group leader. She is a 43-year-old single mother of six and is, on the face of it, a happy-go-lucky woman. With the kind of business she is engaged in (selling produce), this trait presumably works in her favor.

In Seeta where Christine has been operating from for the last twenty years, her reputation has gained currency. This is on the grounds of her impressive business line of operation. Her customer base has grown by leaps and bounds over the years as a result of her exemplary customer relationship skills. Her only let down has been customers who pay her in kind and in installments.

In a month, Christine calculates she makes 100,000 shillings. By her own account, this is not enough for her to achieve her dreams of expansion. She is very optimistic that, with a loan, there will be a favorable turn in her circumstances.

In this group: Christine, Sam, Sarah, Rita, Madina, Faridah, Jane, Lime*
