Namulesa Womens Group's story

50-year-old Ruth got a foothold for her clothing sales business 20 years. Ruth, a happily married mother of three, says starting this business was in many ways her means to an end in her below breadline existence back then. She says with hard work, the business was on the up and up after only four years. She began this business with savings from her earlier farming business. Ruth anticipates making further inroads in her business with the acquisition of this Kiva loan. Monthly, the business generates her profits equal to shillings 240,000. The proceeds from this loan, she says, are for the purchase of more new clothes. She transacts her business in Lugazi.
