Twesimye Nagalama Development Group-Mukono's story

39-year-old Alice L. has been running her timber and firewood selling businesses for twelve years in Nagalama-Mukono. Both these businesses were given the start up push by her husband, with whom she has three kids. She says what spawned the growth of her business from its beginning was the growing demand from many people around Nagalama for timber products and firewood. Sensing this, Alice owed it to herself to work extremely hard to meet the demands of her clients. Before all this, Alice was involved in a local herb selling business. Alice is affiliated with the Twesimye Nagalama development group. Alice is requesting this loan to buy more timber to resell.
