Buntuuse Farmers Assocation, Lugazi Group's story

Success in any business is not necessarily measured by what an individual has achieved but by the obstacles that the individual has overcome along the way as he or she transacts. 27-year-old K. John has had a checkered track record that he says makes him carry conviction that the above is true.

In the four years John has been plying his retail shop business, he has come to terms with the fact that when one experiences firsthand the hardships associated with running a business, it becomes a defining moment in the success or failure of that venture.

The married father of one has brought personal values to his business with determination and perseverance. Weekly, his business generates him 40,000 shillings and, because the cost of living in Busaale, Lugazi, is not that high, John can successfully make ends meet.

With the auspices of this loan, John wants to buy more bags of sugar, bags of rice, and bars of soap for his retail shop. He is planning on selling them to earn more profits.
