Kasongodde Women's, Mubende Group's story

Operating a retail shop that sells general merchandise is a formidable business venture from which John K. (age 48) manages to earn some money to fulfill his life and meet his family's necessities. His shop is in Kasongodde trading centre, Mubende.

It is difficult to begin from scratch and build a strong businesses. John's need to support his six children has made him settle for his current business. Because he had very little capital from his previous farming business to start up his retail shop business, he is seeking a loan. He wants to expand his business into a bigger enterprise and to purchase enough stock so that he has sufficient supplies for his customers. He earns about 50,000 a week from his shop

John wants to build a family house when he gets more profits.
