Basoga Tweyambe-Jinja Group's story

Fred M. belongs to Basoga Tweyambe group-Jinja. Twelve years is the time he has been operating his retail shop in Jinja Town. He started this business with the influence of a close friend. Prior to this, he was more preoccupied with his farming enterprise that he still runs, albeit on a low key basis. To all appearances, Fred seems a diligent,cooperative and determined gentleman. Close friends say he exhibits a certain courage of conviction that they say at length will most probably see him make much more head way in his operations.

At his retail shop he sells a variety of general merchandise retail items that are popular with most people in the area he operates from. Weekly, he says this business generates him shillings 150,000 as profits, and with this loan he says he is going to procure more general merchandise retail items such as maize flour, rice, beans, etc. to resell. The kids who appear in the photo are children of some of the group members.
