A loan of $3,750 helped a member purchasing a boat.

Bugolo Zibulaatudde Kikondo Group 1-Lugazi's story

Twenty-three years down the road operating a fishing business is quite remarkable. Longevity in this cutthroat business normally points to individual hallmarks of hard work, constant planning, resilience, determination and a creative vision. If you take the example of 44-year-old N. Tausi, then you have got a clear testimony to the above.

This happy-go-lucky and affable married mother of six has brought profit grist to her business mill, selling fish all these years. Her business status at present reads like a rags-to-riches success story. With savings from her first farming business, which she still operates at a small scale, Tausi was able to set forth on this business. Casting her mind back, she says her farming business was not as lucrative as this one. She says she had to grapple with a lot of financial difficulty at that time.

As of now, she is planning on building a better family house if her prospects improve with this loan. In a month, her profits total up to 240,000 shillings (about $106). With this loan, she says she wants to buy a boat.

In this group: Tausi, Aisha, Alice, Sarah, Margret, Jamila, Mirabu, Mariam, Jane, Fatuma, Nalongo, Muhamdi, Safina, Ibrahim, Yusufu
