Bwizi Network Of People Living With Hiv, Kyenjojo Group's story

Four years is the time Florence N. has spent overseeing her bar business at Bwizi trading centre, Kyenjojo, after dropping her former agricultural enterprises. She started it with her savings after getting advice from successful friends in the same business. She sells soft drinks like sodas, and beer and local gin, which she does alongside farming. Once her business was on a firm footing, she has been able to make the best out of it.

In a month, this focused married mother of 8 children gets 100,000 Ugandan shillings as her monthly profit. With this money she has managed to cater for all her children’s education needs and general family welfare. She has come to grips with some inevitable business challenges; she has however not lost heart. The determination she carries with her means she is full of optimism that the future of her business will be good.

She belongs to Bwizi Network, a group of people in KYENJOJO. While each member of the group receives an individual loan, they are all collectively responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults.

In this group: Florence, Charles, Rogers, Rose, Alice, Annet, Pison, Fatmah, Joginah, Stella, Charles, Alex, Robert, Jackline*, Amos, Hope*, Martin, Moses, Francis*
