A loan of $4,825 helped a member to buy more charcoal to resell.


Mpiriggwa Twezimbe Group's story

Most successful businesses in Uganda are built out of unwavering diligence, persistence and a sheer determination to succeed. Many people see running a business as a means to an end in their quest to extricate themselves out of poverty. 34-year-old enterprising Sarah is one such person. This happily married mother of 4 has been plying her charcoal sales business in Mityana for the past 2 years. She ekes out further profits from selling bananas. She also has a farm. Before she ventured into this business she was engaged in a tailoring business. She says her weekly sales profits are 30,000 shillings. With this loan, Sarah says she is going to purchase more bags of charcoal to resell.
