Zibula Atudde Women's Group, Mityana's story

In business, striking a first impression chord with your prospective or existing customers is one sure way of ensuring not only short-term but also long-term success. This is exactly the philosophy that 41-year-old K. Edward has used for the last five years to establish a niche for his business selling produce in Nalukolongo, Mityana.

This affably welcoming married father of three now reckons his long-term success is on the horizon, given the short-term hurdles he has overcome and the reciprocal relationship he has with his clients. This common cause he shares with his clients has enabled his business to make strides. This is manifested in the 280,000 shillings he makes monthly.

All of Edward’s three children and two dependents are in school. With this loan, Edward wants to buy more produce like maize, groundnuts (peanuts) and beans.
