Gift Women's Group, Kayunga's story

33-year-old N. Harriet has this likable aura around her that she has used to her advantage in her seven-year-old retail business in Nazigo, Kayunga. The fact that she strikes such a nice chord with people also played into her hands earlier on when her husband gave her startup capital. She did not need too much to prevail upon power; all she did was just be herself, that cheerful and humorous character, and it won her laurels.

Today, this happily married mother of five is driving a roaring trade in her business, courtesy of her good-humored and easily-approachable nature. In her retail business, she has satisfactory rates of profit margin. At present, she makes weekly profits totaling up to 150,000 shillings.

With this loan, Harriet is looking at restocking her retail outlet with an array of purchased goods such as basins, cups, sugar, and shoe polish.
