Katebo Basooka Kwavula Group-Mpigi's story

S. Lawrence, 57 years old and father of six, was inspired by his parents seven years ago to start his fish-selling business in Katebo-Mpigi. Farming has since become his major business occupation. Credit for his success he says, boils down to one factor — diligence. A cross section of clients has enabled him make ends meet although some financial, operational challenges have stifled his anticipated progress. Lawrence belongs to Katebo Basooka group-Mpigi. In a week, he makes Ksh 100,000. With this loan, he will buy more fishing nets to catch more fish to sell and make more income.
