Mpungwe Aliseeka Group Of Jinja's story

B. Hasifa’s face lights up with buoyancy when asked about her current prospects in her ten-year-old maize-selling business in Mpungwe, Jinja. With her lucrative business, this vastly experienced businesswoman has been able to substantially provide for all her six children’s needs, especially their education.

Different school head-teachers in Jinja have been flocking to her work station to buy her maize product which she stores in plenty after the harvest season. Since she began, she has been making steady profits in the range of 200,000 to 250,000 shillings per week.

With the hard work ethic she embodies, Hasifa’s future business prospects are looking favorable every passing year. This being her first loan, she is gleefully optimistic that it will be invaluable in helping her buy more bags of maize.

In this group: Hasifa, Patrick, Peterson, Zilifa, Scovia, Nabirye, Florence, Steven, Frank, Esau, Wilberforce, Paul, Hussein, Athony, Balamu, Moses
