A loan of $2,025 helped a member to restock his store and to buy more animals for his butchery business.


Kirera Twebeisho Group, Bushenyi's story

M. Godfrey, a hardworking and reserved 31-year-old married father of three children, has been operating a butchery business in Kigoma Trading Centre in Bushenyi district for over eleven years. He buys cows and goats which he slaughters and prepares the meat ready for selling to his genuine customers who have supported him this long.

Godfrey’s business has grown to the extent that he has been able to educate all his three children. In a month, he reveals he makes close to 200,000 Ugandan shillings. He also sells matooke (plantain) as a source of side income and makes some additional income through his retail shop.

Godfrey’s drawback is having only a small amount of stock in his businesses. Therefore, he would like to use this loan to restock his retail shop and also buy more animals.

Godfrey’s future plans are to expand his business and improve his sales revenue.
