Bumu Development Group's story

A. Rose is a 42-year-old, good natured, suave, and happily-married mother to four high-spirited kids. She belongs to Bumu Development Group in Mukono.

Rose’s track record in the groundnut (peanut) sales business that she oversees, spans a period of over four years. With persistence and hard work, her business has seen the light of day up to now, notwithstanding the financial adversity that has plagued it. With this loan, she is hoping to improve on her only dependable source of livelihood.

Rose says she is going to buy more containers for her groundnut paste, processors, and more groundnut paste. This she says will be some kind of rebranding and reinvention for her business. She is hoping this will translate into more sales for her product.

Rose traces the advent of her business journey back to a pig husbandry enterprise that she still runs, though it now plays second fiddle to the aforementioned. In a week, her profits total up to 40,000 shillings.

In this group: Rose, Abdul, Grace, Hellen, Jane, Rehema, Resty, Rose
