Kitookye Trading Center Society-Kihihi Group's story

T. Justus, 48, is a married father of four who runs a produce-selling business in the Kitookye trading center of Kihihi. He mostly sells beans, peas and coffee. He started this business eight years ago with savings from his farming business. Justus comes across as a down-to-earth, strong-willed and cooperative gentleman.

Clients of his business vary from hotel owners, housewives, to retailers. Justus says he still runs his farming business given the fact that it is too a dependable means of livelihood in Uganda. Justus says he has managed to give all of his children an education using profits from both these businesses. The produce-selling enterprise generates 50,000 shillings each week for him. With this loan he says he is going to buy more cash crops like millet, maize and rice to resell. He is affiliated with the Kitookye Trading Center Society Group.
