A loan of $1,925 helped a member to purchase more electrical items like bulbs and switches.

Wofunira Women's Group 1, Kampala's story

She is a 40-year-old married mother with four children. To shoulder her responsibilities as a family breadwinner, N. Sarah has been selling electrical gadgets for the last five years in Kampala. This business has sustained her and her family due to the hard work, time and investment, she has put in.

Sarah’s journey into this business was like a leap in the dark by virtue of the fact that she did not have any prior business experience. She had to go through the tough mill of running a business with no requisite experience. Her high sense of self esteem was the trump card she played in getting herself acquainted with operating a business. Her resilience has paid off given her business longevity.

Sarah makes profits to the tune of 200,000 shillings a month. With this loan, she says she wants to buy more electrical items like bulbs, switches and PVC-covered wire for resale.
