Balisima Women's Group B-Lugazi's story

N. Robinah is a likable, light-hearted and astute 45-year-old mother of five. For the last 5 years, she and her family have been subsisting on the monthly 200,000 shillings that she makes as profit in her retail shop. Lugazi is a cosmopolitan metropolis and her customers range from the poor to middle-class people and traders from other towns who come to do business. The basis of her success, she says, lies in hard work, a "never give up" attitude and courage in tackling challenges. She began this business with savings from the odd jobs she had done in and around Lugazi town. Because she had contact with so many successful business people, she thought that taking a shot at running a business would be a good proposition. With this loan, Robinah wants to buy more bags of rice, sugar, and maize flour to sell in her shop.
