Twekembe Kabungo Namutamba Group's story

49-year-old Resty has been engaged in a food sales business for close to 30 years now in Mityana. Resty is a married mother with six kids who are all on the shady side of 20.

Resty principally sells maize and beans. A pep talk from her brother was all she needed to set forth in this business. What plays in the favour of her business is the fact that she gets most of the crops she sells from her farm. This cuts down on the cost of operating her business. Thus far, she is basking in the glow of better sales revenue as clients increase.

Resty says her longevity has not come easy. She has had to work hard to obtain a robust enough niche on the food market in Mityana. Weekly this business's profits add up to shillings 25,000.

Resty has a small pig husbandry business that she also runs. This loan, she says, will help her purchase different foods that she does not normally sell like rice, sorghum, millet, cassava, bananas, etc to resell.
