A loan of $2,075 helped a member to purchase more fruits and vegetables to sell.

Kamuli Road Twekalangule - Jinja Group's story

50-year-old K. Annet says she set forth in her current grocery store enterprise after the demise of her husband. She was at her wits end, and coming to grips with her predicament was the turning point. With 12 kids to provide welfare for, Annet knew she had to do something to bring substantial value to their lives. What exacerbated her situation from the start is the fact that she did not have any prior business experience. But, with conviction, she conquered the odds stacked against her.

The grocery business has now lasted five years. It is located along Kamuli Road which is near the Jinja metropolis. She has mostly been selling fruits and vegetables. She says her weekly profits are to the tune of 180,000 shillings. With this loan, Annet, a member of the Kamuli Road Twekalangule Group, says she is going to buy more vegetables and fruits to sell. She envisages better prospects for her business in the future. Now that the Christmas festive season is in the offing, she says she is looking forward to a roaring trade selling fruits and vegetables.
