Abendowooza Women Development Association-Kampala Group's story

M. Irene, aged 36, has been running her clothes and poultry sales businesses for the last eight years in Lubowa-Kampala. Irene began as a teacher and a politician, and she had always heard the oft-used classroom adage – 'hard work pays'. Irene wanted to use this as a precept in her business and used it she has. Her clothes business brings in 100,000 UGX weekly and she is upbeat about her future business prospects in the wake of getting this loan, which will give her a solid start-up. This married mother of five wants to buy more clothes for resale. She believes that with more clothes sales she will be able to earn more money.
