30-year-old N. Josyline began her retail shop over eight years ago in Bwambari, Rukungiri, with the sole objective of extricating her family from the harsh, narrow circumstances that they found themselves in. She was, prior to that, a married housewife who relied on handouts from her husband who, in a sense, was not doing great in his business undertakings.

Josyline had to set her wits to work. This meant she had to conjure up some business of her own to help her husband to support their family of four people.

What Josyline anticipated at the threshold of her business has not happened; she thought her chances of success were minimal. With her strong resolve and a sense of determination, she has opened new horizons for herself and her family. Per month, her business generates her profits that amount to 360,000 shillings. Her good customer relationship skills are also worth mentioning.

With this loan, Josyline wants to make purchases to restock her retail shop with goods such as sorghum, rice, groundnuts (peanuts) and sugar.
