Katusenvule Development Group, Lugazi's story

When you clock up fifty years, many people, especially in Africa, write you off as ineffectual and, even worse, as a person of straw. For one to fight this stereotype, requires lots of summoned-up courage and resolve.

50-year-old K. Ronah banked on the above to take root in her retail shop in Buloba, Lugazi. She has been a stickler for hard work for the last eight years since her business has been operational. Because of this she has made lots of strides in effectively providing for her family’s welfare on the steady profits she has been making. In a week, she says she makes profits that amount to 30,000 shillings.

Ronah started off her business with savings from her farming business which is now on a small scale. With this loan, she says she wants to buy more general merchandise retail items like soap and sugar for her store.
