A loan of $1,300 helped a member to purchase bags of rice, plastics goods and edibles to sell.


Gakuweebwa Munno Developement Group, Mityana's story

40,000 shillings as weekly profits for a retail business operating in a far off distant metropolis like Mityana is not a bad bargain, given the lower operational costs one incurs in comparison to more expensive places like Kampala. The example of 34-year-old N. Joelia, who has for the last two years been operating her retail shop in Mityana town, is testament to that. The good rapport Joelia has struck with her existing and new customers has been her winning magic formula.

This married mother of four has come quite a long way in establishing a firm foothold in her business. She used profits from this business to improve her family’s welfare in a relatively short period of time. With this loan, she wants to buy more general merchandise for her enterprise. For the most part, she wants to buy bags of rice, plastics goods and edibles to sell.

In this group: Joelia, Annet, Resty, Scovia, Robinah*, Bena, Catherine, John
