Ddembe Women's Group-Lugazi's story

Fifty-four-year-old Robinah N. always takes stock of her business dealings at the end of every operating day. This, the married mother of six says, has helped her give a good account of not only her business, but herself, too. Five years of operating a food sales business at a stall in Buikwe market-Lugazi has kept her well grounded. Prior to running this business, she was a housewife. Much encouragement from a friend helped her take root. In a week, she makes profits that total up to 320,000 shillings. With this loan, she wants to purchase more maize flour, rice, cassava, potatoes and beans for resale.
