Knowledge Resource Center-Bushenyi Group's story

Hard working A. Joan, age 32, is a married mother of four kids between 14 and 6 years old. She has been operating a retail shop selling general products for home use from Nyakabirizi trading centre in Bushenyi. She started this business seven years ago upon realizing the ready market in the area and at the end of every week she is able to pocket profits to the tune of 40,000 Ugandan shillings.

Her main challenge has been not having enough stock in her business to match the purchasing rate of the customers. She is therefore seeking a loan that she says will help her stock more general merchandise retail goods to satisfy the customers’ high demand and transform her enterprise into a big enterprise.

Being very committed to the business with good customer care, she hopes to increase her sales revenue. This will bring about a transformation in her business as she hopes to build a family house, achieve a self-sustaining life and take care of her children’s education expenses. She belongs to the Knowledge Resource Center Group-Bushenyi.
