Bbogo Women's Group 1, Lugazi's story

Nantumbe Margaret, with hand raised, is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a 52-year-old single woman, but a happy-go-lucky and cheerful business woman.

Margaret’s ten-year-old flourishing fish-vending business in Kombwe, Lugazi, has enabled her to give her six children an education. Her modest business has been generating her profits to the tune of 30,000 shillings per week.

With this new loan, Margaret wants to be financially empowered and to buy more fish, which she hopes to sell not only to old clients but also to new ones.

Margaret got inclined to this business after her erstwhile husband prevailed upon her to join him. Since then, she has never looked back, notwithstanding the marital adversities the family had. She wants to buy another canoe boat to facilitate easy delivery of fish to her operating area as well as to pay school fees for her children.
