Twetungure Women, Bushenyi Group's story

Hardworking, purposeful, and humorous, 40-year-old B. Edith, like many other single women in Uganda, is another example of the fact that a determined woman can live her life without the support of a man when a marriage goes wrong.

For eight years, Edith has successfully operated her bookshop business in Ishaka, Bushenyi, albeit with many challenges. She has used her courage and conviction to prevail in narrow circumstances like the aforementioned. She has used earnings from her business to give her one, 28-year-old son a good education.

Edith started off this business with some money that her late husband had as savings. In a week, her business generates her profits totaling up to 50,000 shillings and, with this loan, she wants to purchase a binding machine, binding materials, books and other forms of stationery.

In this group: Edith, Caroline, Judith, Stellah, Sifa, Loyce, Rose, Gloria, Beatrice, Naume, Dinah, Violet, Alice, Getrude, Winnie, Nadia, Lillian, Medius, Evan
