Kikoma Women's Group's story

Prossy N. is 42 years old and married with eight children, six of whom are in school. She is the leader of the Kikoma group in Mubende. Prossy has a retail shop in Kikoma that has been in existence for twenty years. From her shop she is able to make 100,000 UGX in weekly profits. These profits have helped her with her children’s school fees along with help from her husband.

A retail shop is a marketable business in her area, and this is what inspired Prossy to start this business. She was a farmer before opening her shop. Now she has succeeded in life. Her plan is to be able to finish up her house so that her children can lead a decent life.
