A loan of $4,000 helped a member to purchase more merchandise to sell.


Tweweyo Women's Group's story

49-year-old N. Sarah has been operating her general merchandise retail shop for the past 15 years in Buvuma Island, Lugazi. The happily married mother of seven says she began this business with savings from her agro sales business. Through the course of those years in business, she says, it's been diligence, determination and prayers that have kept her business afloat. Sarah also ekes out additional profits from a fish selling business. Weekly, she says, her profits are approximately 100,000 shillings. With this loan, she says, she is going to purchase more retail general merchandise commodities to resell. In the group photo, one lady client was not around when the photo was taken, so I marked her as unpictured. The male client marked as unpictured actually appears in the photo but he did not look directly into the camera.
