Nice Development Group, Mukono's story

35-year-old O. Grace, a delightfully approachable mother of six children, has been plying her fresh foods business in Namuyenje, Mukono, for the last nine years. Notwithstanding the financial challenges and the modest profits accruing to her business, she has invariably made the avoidance of risk her first priority. Her “never beat a retreat” attitude has been her stock in trade and it seems she will continue to grow her business as a result of that attribute. Grace’s profit margins have been mounting up and, at present, she makes weekly profits totaling up to 50,000 shillings. This is paltry but she is still optimistic that her business’s better days are in the offing.

In this group: Grace, Patrick, John, Dorothy, Mariam, Joseph, Beatrice*, Juma, Paul, Margaret*, Fred
