A loan of $3,675 helped a member to purchase more crates of both hard and soft beverages to resell.


Umoja Development Group-Jinja's story

She is 38 years old and a stickler for diligence as regards the day to day running of her small Pub business in Walukuba estates in the metropolis of Jinja. Needless to say, this kind of business undertaking comes with a lot of cutthroat competition, given the high alcohol consumption levels in most urban areas in Uganda, Jinja being one of them. Aware of that fact, N. Hanifa, a happily married mother of five, has worked tirelessly to establish her own niche and to get into the good graces of not only new, but old and prospective patrons. Her Pub offers a wide variety of beverages. Hanifa says she began this business with a paltry capital base in the amount of 20,000 UGX. In the course of time, however, she has been able to make significant headway. Monthly she says she makes profits to the tune of approximately $63. She is requesting this loan to purchase more crates of both soft and hard beverages to resell at the Pub. Hanifa is affiliated with the Umoja Development Group.
