Rwenshama Tukore B, Rukungiri Group's story

Operating a grocery business has really transformed his life. Having been prevailed upon by his wife, M. Richard began his business three years ago in Rwenshama, Rukungiri. He has mostly been selling sugarcane, sweet bananas, charcoal, tomatoes and onions. This business has been bringing him earnings amounting to 100,000 Ugandan shillings on a weekly basis.

Being a married father of six lively children made this 44-year-old come to terms with the fact that he needed to work extra hard to improve his family's welfare. With his cultivated hard-work ethic, he has been able to cater for his family's requirements, including meeting the school fees for his children’s education. That has all been made possible with finances from his business.

Before he began this business, Richard was more inclined to farming. He still derives side profits from his small scale coffee-sales business.

This loan will enable Richard to expand his business through the purchase of more crops like sweet bananas, thus increasing his supplying capacity to his increasing clientele. This will enable him to earn more revenue and live a more sustaining life as he looks at business expansion in the near future.
