Iganga Development Group, Mukono's story

K. Aisha was a dedicated fruit seller before she had a change of mind seven years ago and ventured into what she rationalized would be a more lucrative poultry business.

Like many of her contemporaries, this 40-year-old found the prospect of bearing a hand in any business a fascinating experience. Most of her close acquaintances had entrepreneurial skills and were doing well in business.

As of now, Aisha is eager to cast her mind to the future, knowing how she has strived and gone out of her depth to establish a niche for herself in the local market in Kirinya, Mukono. She attributes her business longevity and all she has achieved to her sense of hard work and determination.

Aisha’s family have also, in the course of the last six years, basked in the glow of any improvement in her circumstances. This happily married mother has laid great store on the education of her children with earnings from her business. In a week, she is able to make ends meet on profits that add up to 200,000 shillings.

Aisha’s future plans are to expand her business even further with this loan. She primarily wants to buy more chickens that she says she will resell in the course of her transactions.
