Twetungure Women, Bushenyi Group's story

Edith B.’s social nature has been at the heart of her success in the ten years she has been operating her stationery and bookbinding business in Ishaka town within the district of Bushenyi. Her experience in this business has taught her the virtue of being cordial to your clients.

Given the nature of her occupation where competition is tight, the above traits have come in handy for 56-year-old Edith. This mother of two reveals her family’s standard of living has improved ever since she began her business in which she binds books and Bibles and also makes envelopes for sale.

On a weekly basis she says she makes 60,000 UGX. With this amount she has managed to send her children to school. With this loan she says she wants to buy more bookbinding materials and expand her operations. Her future plans are to elevate her financial status through the expansion of her business.
