Bring Ambercourt To Unite Group 5, Jinja's story

With a produce-selling business one is guaranteed a ready market, depending on how persuasive one is. That’s what diligent and affable 30-year-old N. Aisha has found out in her ten years experience running her business. She has, for the most part, been selling cassava, bananas and potatoes.

Aisha’s business in Amber Court market, Jinja, has had its fair share of troubles but Aisha has not buckled under the pressure, knowing what is at stake in reference to her family’s welfare. She has five children to take care of and all her children are in school, though at first glance, her paltry profits of 45,000 shillings a week would make one think she is incapable of handling her family tasks.

Aisha was introduced to her business by a close friend and, like any other business, the start was tough as Aisha did not have sufficient capital to buy all the crops she wanted to sell. With a decade's experience behind her, Aisha's optimism is sky high. At first,she was selling only bananas but, at length, she realized she had to diversify into selling other highly favored foods, too.

Aisha is looking at expanding her business with this loan. That, in essence, means buying produce like bananas, cassava and potatoes that she intends to sell. She is elated that she is going to establish a strong niche for herself after she gets this loan.
