Omunaku Kaghama Jinja Womens Group's story

If one is to cast their mind back to the Ugandan days of old, they will be brought to terms with the fact that most people earned their livelihood through subsistence farming. 61-year-old N. Rose is old enough to call to mind those days. Sixteen years ago she was more inclined to subsistence farming until she realized the old status quo had changed, as many farmers today are commercially oriented, planting cash crops that bring them return value profits at the end of every harvest season.

She decided then that she had to start a tailoring business where she mostly sold the clothes she had sewn in Buwenda-Jinja. Being a widow, she knew she had her responsibility cut out for her. With six children to take care of, she knew only hard work would be her saving grace. And her saving grace it truly has been, as she is seeing the dividends. In a week, profits from her business average up to $27. She also has a poultry business. With this loan, she wants to buy an electric sewing machine that will make her work much faster and more improved.
