A loan of $1,400 helped a member buy more bottled soft drinks and roast chicken to sell.

Kweyamba Womens Group 3-Namawojjolo -Lugazi's story

N. Christine, 28, earns her living waiting for travelers to buy bottled fruit juices and chicken from her stand. It is not always a rosy picture! One has to have reserves of resilience to succeed in this business. Anyone who has traversed the Kampala-Jinja highway will bear witness to the stiff competition that exists at this popular stop-over for refreshments. Christine is now four years into this business and says she has managed to give one of her young children an education out of the profits. In a week she makes close to 45,000 shillings, and is anticipating better prospects with the acquisition of this loan. Through the sale of more bottled soft drinks and roast chicken she will be able to earn more money.
