A loan of $4,600 helped a member to purchase more retail commodities.

Sikyomu Group-Mukono's story

N. Harriet was inspired by a close acquaintance to start up a retail shop in Katosi-Mukono a decade ago. The friend had observed that a retail shop stocked with a variety of general merchandise in the Katosi trading center would be a lucrative venture. Before that, 45-year-old N. Harriet, a happy-go-lucky single mother of 3, was banking on profits from a banana sales business. She now sells essential commodities such as sugar, maize flour and rice and the business generates 200,000 UGX monthly. Harriet plans to use this loan to purchase more retail commodities to resell. Harriet belongs to the Sikyomu group-Mukono.
