Tusooka Kwavula Women's Group 1-Lugazi's story

Due to her unwavering steadfastness 42-year-old T. Jannet has not compromised her business values, even in the face of provocation, threats, competition and, above all, challenging business conditions. This has been the hallmark that has set her drug store or pharmacy business in Lugazi town apart from others in the last 13 years. Her customers range from the lowly to the middle class and live in her area of operation and even from beyond.

Jannet belongs to Tusooka Kwavula Women's Group. It has helped her to have a supportive family and the first person on hand for her has been her husband. This kind of business, which involves selling and prescribing drugs, is tailor made for somebody who has gained an apprentice nurse training and Jannet is a qualified nurse. She worked first in a health center. Jannet says that credit for her success so far boils down to her hard work and tenacity. In a month, she makes 430,000 UGX, and with this loan she hopes to buy more drugs that she will, at length, resell.
