Namataba Development Group-Mukono's story

In Namataba-Mukono, there is a sand quarry that is well known for employing energetic youth who work hard everyday to make ends meet. Out of curiosity, I took it upon myself to visit this riveting place. There is a semblance of beehive activity as young people go about their work.

M. Muhammed, who started the quarry three years ago, is a good humored and easily approachable lad who has one child. He belongs to the Namataba Development group. He traces his business roots to selling maize or corn, which he says was of paramount importance in getting him on his feet. He makes 80,000 shillings a week. Muhammed also ekes further profits from selling fresh food.

Paying the employees of his quarry has been an experience that has often dampened and played havoc with the smooth operations of his business. This loan will help him pay his employees.

In this group: Muhammed, Irene, Christine, George, Wilber, Ivan, Ronald, Abdul, Harriet, Zaitune, Rogers
