Agip Women's Group-Mukono's story

39-year-old N. Harriet, a married mother of four, is full of dynamism, enthusiasm and enterprise. These attributes have stood out as stocks in trade in her small beauty salon and water sales businesses in Seeta-Mukono. She has been operating these businesses for the last 7 years. These businesses generate her 75,000 shillings weekly. Harriet, who makes a common cause with Agip Women’s Group-Mukono, says it was her husband’s inspiration that laid the start-up financial path for her. In the preceding years, she was operating a charcoal sales business. Harriet says she is going to purchase more salon products, principally cosmetics, with this loan.
