Twezimbe Women's Group Buikwe-Lugazi's story

Fifty-year-old Azzidsa N.'s food-selling business in Lweru-Lugazi generates 200,000 shililngs a month. Azzida is a single, hardworking mother with six kids. Her business has now lasted 20 years.

Being an agriculturist has been invaluable in many ways, principally the fact that she hardly runs out of food to sell. The kinds of foods she sells are popular all over Uganda. Foods such as bananas, cassava, maize, cabbages, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are mostly what she sells.

With this loan, she is looking at rejuvenating her business with the bulk purchase of staple foods like bananas, cassava and beans to resell. Azzida is anticipating that she will be able to make more than enough profits after she resells most of what she will buy. She also hopes to keep more in reserve. Azzida is part of the Twezimbe Women's Group - Buikwe, Lugazi.

In this group: Azzida, Fred, Chrsitine, Richard, Sunday, Christine, Lukia, Tomasi, Tomasi, Simon, Sam, Rehema, Njule, Loziyo, Justine, Harriet, Beti, Zilaba, Sarah, Rhodah, Florence
