Afaayo Development Group, Mukono's story

Z. Elisha is a 37-year-old happy-go-lucky married father of four. To provide for his family’s welfare, he does laundry at people’s homes and also tends people’s compounds in and around the environs of Kyaliwajala in Mukono. For the last seven years he has been doing this.

Despite the societal scorn this type of job carries, Elisha has glossed over the stereotypes and gotten himself a niche. In his fast growing operating area, his elbow-grease work is getting a flood-tide of approval and exposure from his increasing clientele.

In the run-up to the dawn of last year, Elisha’s profit-making prospects improved as a result of the enormous appreciation for his work. In a month, he says he makes 400,000 shillings. With this loan, a determined Elisa says he wants to buy new laundry cleaning equipment and also a mowing machine.
