Kisakye Women's Group-Mukono's story

N. Robinah belongs to the Kisakye Women’s Group-Mukono. She is 42 years old, hard working, happily married and blessed with five buoyant children. Taking her family responsibilities in stride, Robinah has for the last 18 years been under the financial auspices of her boutique business in Mpunge-Mukono. This above mentioned coupled with her diary farming enterprise has been her family’s dependable means of livelihood.

She set forth on this business with pep talk ideas from a close friend. Robinah was, prior to this, involved in a fishing business that in retrospect she says gave her some of the financial backup to start up this business. In a week, Robinah says she can make up to $31.

The experienced stock in trade, she says she has banked on to achieve longevity in this business, has been her exceptional customer care skills and her high spirited entrepreneurial efficacy. Robinah says her major challenge in the course of doing her business has been the lack of sufficient capital to buy more new clothes to resell in her boutique. This, she says, has in many respects affected the growth of her business. She reckons with this loan she will be able to buy more new clothes to resell and as a result make more profit.
