Katanda I Tukwatanise Group-Bushenyi's story

G. Danson of Katanda I Tukwatanise group-Bushenyi is 32 years old and operates a general merchandise shop from his home area of Kanyashande, Bushenyi. He has operated the shop and also made agricultural produce sales to the local population for over 3 years. Alongside the retail shop he grows bananas, beans and more all that help him earn revenue. Danson makes 120,000 UGX per month; a figure he says will not substantially sustain his business for the near future. Therefore he is seeking a loan to help him purchase more goods to restock his shop and thus be able to make more sales.

In this group: Danson, Moses, Specioza, Amos, James, Alex, Bashiru, David, Vereriano, Stephen, Samson, Elias
