Bbogo Women's Group 2, Lugazi's story

B. Henry, shown with a raised hand, is an enterprising 24-year-old divorced retail business owner in Nkumbwe landing site, Lugazi district. He has one child who unfortunately does not attend school.

Henry has been plying his business for the last two years and he mainly deals in sugar, maize flour and beans. Currently his business generates him profits to the tune of 100,000 Ugandan shillings, per month. His small scale retail business is his only source of income. Most of his customers are fishermen from the neighboring villages.

Henry says that, with this loan, he will be in a position to rejuvenate his business which has been plagued by losses due to the unpredictable change in customers’ preferences. He became involved in this business after he saw that no-one had a retail shop in his locality. He plans on educating his only child and buying more merchandise for his retail business after he gets this loan.
