Kashenshero United, Bushenyi Group's story

Hard-working, 35-year-old Peace N. has a dependable sense of purpose as regards anything to do with her 8-year-old agro-produce business. She has worked tooth and nail to keep her business, which trades in bananas from the Kashenshero trading center. On the sunny side, her strong work ethic has gotten her far, as her business currently generates 300,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis. With these modest earnings, she has been able to make the best of the bad bargains that have hit her business occasionally. She gleefully reveals how she is able to educate three out of her four children, who are undergoing different institutions of learning respectively with her small profits.

With this loan, she envisions being financially empowered to buy more stock of bananas and further pay rent for the business shop as she looks at expansion into bigger markets and also to improve her household income from the sales of her business.
