Burema Women's, Kihihi Group's story

Hard working and cooperative Edith K. has been running a general merchandise retail shop from Burema trading centre in Kihihi, where she sells general merchandise and basic items for home use. She has been operating this business for over 6 years. She started this business with capital she got from farming business and so far it earns her 300,000 Ugandan Shillings. The mother of 8 children confirms that she has had problems in restocking her business as the stock available is not satisfying for the customers' demands.

Therefore she is seeking a loan to help her buy more goods for the business for resale in hopes of earning more income to cater for her family's needs, thus improve her standard of living. She belongs to Burema Women’s group with other members who hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
