Bring Ambercourt To Unite Group [Bamu], Jinja's story

Being a security guard in a Ugandan metropolis means many things. First and foremost, it means sacrificing nighttime sleep, doing without respite hours and not having enough time for family. That was the exact experience M. Dan went through before he called it quits and started his five-year-old business selling chapati (unleavened flatbread, similar to tortillas) in Amber Court Market in Jinja.

For this single 24-year-old, it was time to cast his mind to the future. Dan knew he had to extricate himself out of this problem. His decision to take up this business was based partly on the fascination Ugandans have with chapati rolled egg omelets and the fact that he needed to find a stable and more convincing livelihood.

For the last five years, Dan has shown resilience in stemming the tide of financial and other challenges to his fledgling business that have cropped up. His hard work has been paying dividends as he has been making profits close to 30,000 shillings a week. With his determination the future looks promising.

Dan is planning on expanding his business through the purchase of more bags of chapati baking flour with the assistance of this loan.
