Nasuuti Womens Group-Mukono's story

A. Janiffer, who leads this loan group, is 41 years old and went into business selling snacks six years ago. She works in Lweza-Mukono with the support of her husband, who strongly supported her decision to go into business. They are the proud parents to six lively and healthy children, all of whom attend school. She supplements her income by raising pigs. She works hard, but is kept going by a strong sense of purpose and determination. She now earns 50,000 Ugandan shillings a week, and plans to use this loan to buy more potatoes, cassava and pigs to sell. She also wants to expand her business by selling chickens as well.
