Twebaze Womens Group's story

Norah is 40 years old and sells beverages, fruit, and vegetables at her grocery store in Mpigi town. She is a happily married mother of seven. Norah says that she worked in weaving and making handcrafts before she joined this business. Since becoming involved in the grocery store, she has stopped her weaving and handcrafts work. Norah is an easygoing, upbeat, hard-working and focused businesswoman. This may just be the stock in trade she needs to open up a better horizon of opportunity for her business in the future. On the side, she ekes out further revenue from a small brick-sales business. She says her business generates profits of 150,000 shillings each month. This loan is to aid her in purchasing more crates of soft drinks and fruit and vegetables to resell at her grocery store.
