Kayunga Market Women's Group 1, Kayunga's story

37-year-old N. Jane of Kayunga Market Women's Group 1, Kayunga, bears testament to the fact that one does not need experience to be an upstart in any business. Going by her own account, all that is needed is a sense of unwavering determination, diligence, pro-activeness, belief, and constant planning. It is now a decade since she took the reins of her vegetable and fruit selling business in Kayunga town market.

Jane is a married mother of two and, along the way, she has not had it easy. In a word, she describes her experiences as chequered, just as in any other business undertaking. That courage of conviction and perseverance, she says, have been her stock in trade.

In a week, Jane makes 60,000 Ugandan shillings and, with this loan, she wants to buy more fresh vegetables and fruits to resell and henceforth make more profits.

In this group: Jane, Ronald, Charles*, Sarah, Hasifa, Alice, Betty, Hadija, Kubo*, Safina, Rehema, Fred*, Sarah, Tabisa, Esther, Annet
