Victoria Women's Group B-1, Lugazi's story

42-year-old focused M. Joseph operates a seven-year-old shoe-sales enterprise in Lugazi Town. With profits from this business this happily-married man has managed to substantially provide for his family’s welfare and his seven children’s education.

Joseph started his business after a pep talk by his father. He was at first involved in a poultry business that he still operates, though it now plays second fiddle to his premier business. Since he began, this hard-toiling man has been making profits to the tune of 150,000 shillings weekly.

Joseph is planning to buy more new pairs of shoes to sell.

In this group: Joseph, Lawerence, Zaituni, Grace, Sipe, Adera, Christine, Nakato, Annet, Phillpy, Rose, Sarah, Lydia, Harriet, Densi, John, Rose, Rhema, Sikolastika
