Isaac's story

35 years old and welcoming, M. Isaac deals in produce and household items in Wakitaka, Jinja. He has been operating his shop since 2005. He became involved in this business as a means of supplementing the paltry earnings from his prior odd-job business.

Once Isaac came to terms with the lucrative nature of his new-found venture, he changed fully to a produce and household items business. Not one to be thrown out of gear as a result of his naïveté, he persisted through the early unchartered troubled waters. That is the reason he cites for his longevity. With this stock in trade, he has managed to cater for all his children’s educational and other welfare needs.

Isaac’s five-year-old business now brings in a monthly income of 150,000 shillings. He wants to increase this profit in the near future. With this loan he wants to purchase more produce and household merchandise to sell on a bigger scale to his clientele.
