A loan of $4,150 helped a member revamping her grocery store and purchasing more bales of clothes for resale.


Kasenge Women's Group-Mukono's story

N. Justine, 46, has been a businesswoman for the last 10 years in Mbalala-Mukono. Over the course of these years, she has been managing her grocery store business. This has, to a certain degree, been a satisfactory means of subsistence for her and her family. The happily married mother of 6 says self-interest and efficiency are what spawned her business.

Before she embarked on this business journey, she was mostly involved in a modest old clothes sales business. The business is still in existence though it is second fiddle as of now. The grocery store business has been doing well, judging by the 600,000 shilling profits she makes monthly. With this loan, Justine says she is going to revamp her grocery business and also buy more bales of old clothes for resale.

Justine belongs to Kasenge Women's group-Mukono.
