A loan of $3,325 helped a member to purchase more foods such as sweet potatoes, rice, maize, etc.

Kafundezi Basubuuzi Twegatte Group's story

23-year-old Joseph has been in the food sales business in Mubende for 3 years now. He mostly deals in bananas in the food markets in that district. Joseph is single with no kids and he says he was inspired by his friend to try his hand at this business.

The decision he took to begin this source of livelihood has in many ways made him proud. Joseph says living by his wits was a proposition that he dreaded. Before, he was before engaged in a small farming business but it did not help that much as most of the food he was growing was harvested for home consumption.

Monthly he says this business generates shillings 300,000 as profit and he says with this loan, he is going to purchase more foods like sweet potatoes, rice, maize, etc. which he says sell at higher prices on the local market. In the group photo, Joseph is the one with the raised hand.
