Bwavu Mpologoma W/g, Mpigi Group's story

S. Christine is a happily married woman with five children, two of whom are in school. 48-year-old Christine is the perfect personification of hard work. She has, for the last fourteen years, been multi-tasking, plying her produce sales and grocery business in Mpigi Township. Before she ventured into this business, she was inclined to low-key subsistence farming.

Throughout these years of operating, Christine has painstakingly taken measures aimed at getting into her customers good graces. She attributes her good customer handling line of operation as one of the reasons for her business’s longevity. She is optimistic the future will be even brighter on the acquisition of this loan.

Currently Christine makes weekly profits totaling up to 40,000 shillings. With this loan, she is intent on expanding her business. She wants to buy more of the produce that is in high favor with most of her clientele like maize, avocados, tomatoes, apples, and cassava.
