Mukono Women's Crafts Enterprise Group's story

Thirty-seven-year-old Faith N., a widow with five kids, says her decade-long tenure in her grocery store business in Butebe-Mukono is what she has been banking on to provide for herself and her family since the completion of her university education.

Before she embarked on this business, she was teaching in many primary schools in and around the Mukono Town area. Faith still teaches and she also has a crafts-sales business that she also runs.

Hard work, she says, has been her recourse in trying times. Faith, who is affiliated with the Mukono Women's Crafts Enterprise group, says this business generates her 200,000 shillings monthly as profit. With this loan, Faith says she is going to pay for the expansion of her grocery store.

In this group: Faith, Sarah, Sarah, Teddy, Elizabeth, Esther, Hamida, Abdul, Noeline, Aisha, Margaret
