Bakristo Kweterana Group, Ibanda's story

N. Sarah has been operating her hotel (restaurant) in Birunga, Ibanda, for the last eight years. Hard work, resilience and determination have been her winning factors over the course of these years.

For this married mother of eight, business success depends on hard work and she truly has lived up to it. In a week, she reckons she makes profits that amount to 90,000 shillings.

Sarah’s dream is to open up another branch in another part of western Uganda. This, she figures, will help her make more profits. She also wants to give her children the best education.

With proceeds from this loan, Sarah wants to take rejuvenation measures aimed at improving her hotel and she also wants to start on her plans to setup another branch. She wants to buy more furniture and cutlery for her hotel.
