A loan of $2,975 helped a member the purchase of more shoes to resell.

Jinja Central B-Jinja Group's story

Looking at somebody’s end of month balance sheets can give you a fair or relative idea of how well their business is doing. If you take the example of 38-year-old divorced N. Florence, a shoe seller for seven years now, you will be brought to terms with her variable business prospects.

In a week, this diligent lady makes about $67, and in a month she gets approximately $266. This is notwithstanding the operational cost challenges of running a business. Her shoe selling business profits have permitted her to shoulder most of her family’s financial requirements.

All of her four buoyant children are happily in school. She has also been eking side profits from another lucrative business - raising poultry. With this loan, she wants to purchase more pairs of shoes that she will later resell to her increasing clientele. She envisages a situation where she will be able to see her balance sheet triple what she is making now.
