Wofunira Development Association Group's story

Robinah is the strong, dynamic chairperson for the Wofunira Development Association, a women’s lending group in the Zana Village. Zana is a village divided by a very busy road between Kampala and Entebbe. Most of the businesses are located on the main road and are better stocked and have more variety than businesses in villages off of paved roads. There is also more competition, and people pay higher rents for the exposure. Businesses can cater to people outside their communities.

Such is the case with Robinah. She and her husband have the Fairy Star Electrical Center. They are an electrical retailer and wholesaler. They provide electrical wire, switches, panel boxes for electricians, and light bulbs such as energy-saving fluorescents for homeowners.

Robinah is 38 and married with 4 children. She also takes care of 2 orphans. With her loan, she plans to buy more electrical supplies for her store.

In this group: Robinah, Sarah, Ruth, Harriet, Margaret, Margaret, Miriam, Sarah, Josephine, Teddy, Sylivia, Agnes, Betty, Mastula
