Mukisa Women's Group Lugazi's story

It pays to be cordial, placid, and resolute, and to always have resources in reserve to deal with the unexpected when doing business. This is the perspective that 46-year-old N. Teddy has been laying to heart the last eight years running her pub and pork-selling businesses in Namataba-Lugazi. N. belongs to the Mukisa women’s group - Lugazi.

N. has succeeded in making profitable use of her time running this business that she began with the help of her husband. Savings from her pub business rendered countenance to her in getting her on her feet. In a week she makes profits that add up to 450,000 shillings. With this loan she wants to buy more crates of both hard and soft drinks for her business and also to buy pigs to reduce the costs she incurs buying pork from butcher shops.
