Kimenyedde Womens Group, Kayunga's story

N. Racheal at 60 years is still active at effectively seeing to it that her retail business outlet in Malyangalyanga, Kayunga, is operating successfully. It’s a business she began when she was still on the sunny side of 30 and, amazingly, it’s still going strong, notwithstanding the many challenges that have reared their heads.

Racheal’s success story has made other people in her village strive to emulate her. It’s now 42 years down the road and her unwavering business spirit does not look like it’s getting frail any time soon. Instead, she has been emboldened more by the fact that she has managed to survive this long despite the fact that she operates in a rural setting.

Racheal is a widow whose determination to educate all her seven children has never wavered. As a result, all of them are in good schools around Kayunga. In a month, she makes profits to the tune of 400,000 shillings and, with this loan, she is hoping she will have the leverage to purchase more items for her retail shop: items like bags of sugar and salt, bars of soap, basins, cups and many more items that her clients have an inclination for.
