Byabasita Tukwatanise Group, Ibanda's story

In Byabasita, Ibanda, business can blossom if one summons up those two, always-neglected, business winning factors: planning and hard work. He has been a wise planner and as a result, 42-year-old N. Willy is basking in the glow of his ten-year-old commercial agriculture business.

Willy has been banking on this business to cater for all his family’s needs. That is a clear testimony that hard work pays. He also mentions good customer handling skills as a requisite factor that should not be glossed over if one is to fully succeed. This he says creates good rapport with his clients.

Willy has mostly been selling maize, beans, cassava and millet. His dream is to expand his business further with the acquisition of this loan. He also wants to see to it that all his children are all in good schools. With this loan, he wants to buy more crops like coffee that he will later resell, but he also wants to expand his trading activities beyond Ibanda town.

In this group: Willy, Dinah, Florence, Eric, Ceremensia, Anatoori, Rabbeck, Joy, Geofrey, Jane, Fred, Joy, Joyce, Stephen, Provia, Benson, Emmanuel, Anthony, Annet, Rose, Africano, Brazio, Posius, Jarmson, Hannington, Lawrence
