A loan of $2,500 helped a member to purchase more foodstuffs for her business.

Gogonyo Women And Orphan Association-Kampala Group's story

S. Sarah, 48, has relied on her suave, self-motivated and strong-hearted entrepreneurial spirit to make progress in her small kiosk business in Nsambya-Kampala. Sarah, who is married and has eight children, was pep-talked into this business by one of her closest friends. This was her first business and has, for all this time, been her main source of livelihood. It is a modest business but Sarah has been able to live on its proceeds.

Mainly, Sarah sells edibles such as roast bananas, chicken and local prepared dishes. With the help of this loan, she intends to boost her business in the way she knows best – by buying more foods such as maize flour, rice, cassava and beans. Her optimism is sky high that she will be able to make more money when she buys a greater variety of food to prepare for her old, new and prospective customers.
