A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase new furniture and utensils for her restaurant.

Committed Women's Group, Kampala's story

She found herself in at a loose end after the death of her husband, but 34-year-old resourceful and unfazed N. Zaituni knew she had to quickly come to grips with the harsh realities that lay ahead of her if she was to significantly manage the responsibility of taking care of her four children and ten orphans.

After overcoming the grief that came in the wake of the untimely death of her husband, Zaituni embarked on a business venture she envisaged would help her shoulder her late husband’s responsibilities – she began a restaurant business along Buganda Road in Kampala city. On the grounds of her resilience, determination and diligence, her business has now lasted fifteen years.

Zaituni’s odds of further future success are more than 10 to 1, owing to the semblance of high customer interest in her restaurant. In a month, she says she makes profits in the range of 200 to 250 thousand shillings.

With this loan, Zaituni wants to buy more furniture like chairs, tables and cutlery for her expanding restaurant business.
