Bakyala Kwekulakulana, Lugazi Group's story

She has been plying her business of secondhand clothing in Ajjija, Lugazi for the last eight years. With this business, 42-year-old S. Aminah has sustained herself and her family of nine children. All her children are in high institutions of learning.

Before she fully ventured into the business of secondhand clothing, Aminah was preoccupied with farming. She still does some farming to supplement her minimal earnings.

Aminah mostly sells children’s and women’s clothing and her clients have mostly been women from the locality she operates from. Her good human and customer relationship skills have lent that much needed countenance as she operates her business.

In general terms, the problem of inadequate capital has been Aminah’s main undoing throughout these years of operation. With this loan, Amina is optimistic that her business will make headway. She is looking at buying more secondhand clothing to sell to her ever-increasing clientele.

In this group: Aminah, Joseph, Vincent, Issac, Allen, Christine, Felista, Madina, Deborah, Betty, Sarah, Fred, Yona
