Mbalwa Development Group- Mukono's story

Ruth N. is a 38-year-old happily married mother of four who has been in charge of a flourishing grocery store in Mbalwa-Mukono for the past ten years. From the statement, one may be deluded to think she is dead, but the statement is in perspective. Ruth, a courteous, welcoming and lively woman, says that close friends motivated her to start this business where she mostly has been selling mineral water and foodstuffs of all kinds. Her first business was a canteen in a neighboring school. This grocery business generates about $86 a week for her. Ruth is a member of Mbalwa Development group and she says that with this loan she is going to restock her grocery store with more foodstuffs to resell. She says that this will, at length, help her a great deal in terms of improved sales profits. She says this will be the first step towards expanding her grocery.
