Tufube Women's Group, Jinja's story

32-year-old N. Betty has given this good account of herself in her general merchandise retail shop in Bugembe, Jinja. She has made a favorable impression on her clients for the last six years with her good line of conduct and efficient business operation methods. Her reputation has gained currency as a result of her hard work and good service policy.

With the financial proceeds from her business, this happy-go-lucky married mother to eight buoyant children has, in a way, extricated herself and her family from the poverty trap that so often is commonplace in Africa. Her retail shop grew out of her earlier business – a small grocery shop that existed at the threshold of 2000.

Betty has gotten herself into a satisfactory rate of progress in her enterprise and at present she makes profits to the tune of 120,000 shillings per week. With this loan, she wants to purchase more retail items like soap, maize flour and salt.
