Wokulira Development Group's story

Sarah is 45 years old and has been running a grocery store in Mukono for the past seven years. She mostly sells watermelon, pineapples, soft drinks, and other items. The mother of six says that she has learned a great deal about many business fundamentals during this time. Her business goal is to find ways to improve and expand her business. Sarah has used her good relationship skills and work ethic to make significant strides. She believes that her business prospects will continue to expand as long as she maintains her unwavering attitude. Sarah says that she was prevailed upon by her husband to start her business. Prior to that, she made ends meet through teaching. She has not dispensed with teaching, although the remuneration for teachers in Uganda is not something one can talk of in the highest of terms. Sarah’s weekly profits are approximately 60,000 UGX.

Sarah will use her portion of her Kiva loan to purchase more pineapples, jakefruit, watermelon and soft drinks to sell at her grocery store.
