Twisakilala Group, Jinja's story

B. Mwajab of Twisakilala Group, Jinja, is 38 years old and has, for the last four years, been in charge of a business selling secondhand clothes in Wakitaka, Jinja. With profits from this business she has, to a certain degree, managed to elevate her family’s welfare.

What has been of paramount importance to Mwajab all these years has been hard work. Her amiable personality has also played so much into her favor as this has gotten her many friends who in turn have turned into clients.

Prior to this, Mwajab was selling timber which she still does, albeit on a small scale. This was her first business but, because she was not making ends meet, she decided to try bearing a hand in her current business undertaking. She has never looked back since, as this business has proved to be worthwhile.

In a week Mwajab makes profits that add up to 180,000 Ugandan shillings. With this loan she wants to buy more bales of secondhand clothing and also new clothes, especially for Christmas sales.

In this group: Mwajab, Janat, Sarah, Shamira, Jesca, Fatum
