Kayunga Market Women's Group 2, Kayunga's story

Enraptured is the word to describe 40-year-old W. Ssenoga’s demeanor when he is operating his banana-selling business. He belongs to Kayunga Market Women's Group 2, Kayunga.

Ssenoga’s star has been shining ever-brighter in the last seven years because he has owed it to himself to strike a chord with his clients using not only with his sense of humor, but also his good relationship skills. His success, however, all boils down to his diligence and steadfast entrepreneurial spirit.

This happily married father of six says he began his business with savings from his former fishmonger business. In a week he makes 80,000 Ugandan shillings as profits. He also operates a commercial motorcycle transportation business commonly referred to here as boda-boda.

Ssenoga’s reckoning is that this loan will come in handy to financially help him to buy more bananas to sell and also to pay for repairs to his motorcycle.
