A loan of $2,275 helped a member to purchase more bags of bananas and passion fruit to sell.


Nezikokoolima Women's Group, Lugazi's story

A decade running a competitive and cutthroat business is no walk in the park, as 49-year-old N. Yeko would attest. This married mother of five has had to make the best out of hard bargains that have plagued her business, to get herself on a stable footing.

In Kigenda, Lugazi, where Yeko runs her businesses selling bananas and passion fruit, she has had to summon up a sense of resilience and determination to establish for herself a dependable niche. On weekly profits totaling up to 40,000 shillings, her business has made steady progress. As a testimony to this, she has managed to educate all five of her children. She was into a coffee-selling business before she ventured into her current enterprise.

With this loan, Yeko wants to revamp and expand her business through the purchase of more bags of bananas and passion fruit that she will later sell to her increasing clientele.
