Kayembe Development, Rukungiri Group's story

Operating a grocery and produce store has really improved T. Adrine's living conditions. In the past, T. Adrine, now 34, was involved in the farming business. Eighteen years ago, she changed her business into a food enterprise of products such as beans, millet flour, peas, and maize. She has been running this business from Rukungiri's central market, where she earns 280,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis.

As a married mother of 5 children, Adrine has been hardworking, knowing her responsibilities are cut out for her. She has been able to satisfy her family's requirements, including school fees for her children and other necessities, with help from her husband. Her drawback is having only a small stock of goods in her business. The loan she is requesting will enable her to expand the business through buying more goods and thus increasing her capacity to supply a ready market of customers. This will enable her to earn more sales revenue and live a more sustainable life as she looks at business expansion and building up a store.
