A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy cosmetics and hair weaving implements for a beauty salon.

Kikozza Women's Development Group - Mityana's story

On the strength of her hard work-driven approach and her courage of conviction, 35-year-old Jane N. has obtained a strong business niche for her beauty salon business in Kiryokya-Mityana. By and large she has used her strength of character to forestall and overcome the inevitable challenges that come with operating her nine-year-old business. That has been her reliable winning calling card.

Jane also ekes out side profits from a retail business enterprise. In a given week, Jane says she makes profits that amount to about 35,000 Ugandan shillings. With her share of this loan to the Kikozza Women's Development Group, whose members are pictured in the photo that accompanies this profile, Jane envisages being in a better position to buy more cosmetics and other salon equipment like hair weaving implements for her salon.
