Bakuseka Maggya Group Of Kampala's story

37-year-old, N. Hadijah has been selling produce for the last twenty years in Owino market in Kampala. With her kind of business, good customer care skills are vital. With these in tow, she has been able to establish herself a strong niche in her operating area.

Hadijah reveals that, in a month, she makes profits amounting to 100,000 shillings, and it’s with this that she has been able to educate her six children.

Hadijah has faced problems in her business such as the high costs involved in transporting produce to her workplace. On the basis of this, she wants to be empowered by this loan to be able to expand into a wholesale business. A wholesale produce business, she says, involves less transportation costs as, for the most part, farmers bring in deliveries fewer times in a given period.

With the loan, Hadijah plans the construction of a much bigger food stall for herself and she also wants to foot the costs of increased fruits and vegetable supplies to her workplace.
