Alinhinkira Women's Association-Jinja Group's story

N. Joy is affliated to Alinhinkira Group-Jinja. She is happily married with nine children. The trade of welding has mostly been a male preserve, but it is fascinating that in today’s Uganda you will find women who are eager to turn a hand to even the hardest of jobs, which often involve a lot of elbow grease. Joy has been involved in this trade for ten years now. Her operating headquarters are in Ivunamb trading center-Jinja.

The need for self reliance, she says, is what got her started in this business. Her story of transformation from a housewife into a fully fledged businesswoman is something in which she takes pride. She says young underprivileged girls can look up to her and emulate her. Her weekly income is 70,000 UGX. Joy also runs a charcoal sales business. With this loan, she wants to purchase metal materials for welding doors, windows and chairs.
