Bakyara Twekambe Group B, Ibanda's story

Kurusam has had a grocery store in Kyaruhanga that sells foodstuffs and other domestic items for four years; she is able to make 180,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) as weekly income. Her customers are basically the general public.

Before starting her business, she sold her 10 goats and got an additional 100,000 UGX from her father. She is also involved in the rearing of chickens. Being hard working has enabled her to succeed. She hopes for an educated family and expanded business and at the moment, she needs a loan to be able to purchase more grocery products.
