Akutwala Ekiro Nakawuka-Mpigi Group's story

Edith N. is 30 years old and happily married with four children. She is affiliated with the Akutwala Ekiro Nakawuka-Mpigi Group. For the past three years, Edith has been operating a business selling fresh food in Nakawuka. She started small, but her future prospects are looking brighter because her clientele is increasing. Edith has mostly been selling cassava, maize, beans, cabbage and other varieties of food staples that are common among people in her area. She was able to start her business with savings from an earlier job working in a local craft shop. Her food business requires hard work, determination, and constant planning. Edith’s weekly profits are approximately 150,000 UGX. With this loan, Edith will buy more food to sell.
