Kugumikiriza Group-Jinja's story

O. Jane is a member of Kugumikiriza group-Jinja. She is widowed, has five children and for the last 10 years has principally been selling plastics and scrap metal as a means of earning a livelihood. It’s a business she says is worthwhile as she does not have to incur any operational costs as she operates from home.

Savings from a cassava selling business enabled her to jump-start this business. Jane says that what she has achieved in many respects boils down to two things - dedication and a sense of purpose. In the period of one week she says her profits equate to 130,000 shillings. With this loan, she is looking at buying more scrap that she says she will resell.
