Zikusooka Womens Group's story

56-year-old Zaituni believes the surest way not to fail in any business undertaking is to be determined to succeed. That has been this mother of 8's philosophy for the last 15 years as she goes about her clothing sales business in Lugazi. Her humility, confidence and the fact that she is always fresh as a daisy in dealing with her clients have been her winning stocks in trade.

Zaituni has been succeeding by a long shot and she is hoping for more success in the near future. She says the inspiration to begin this business came from her dad. Prior to that, she was running a retail shop. On the side, Zaituni also does some small scale agriculture and tailoring. She says this business generates profits totaling 200,000 shillings per month. With the requested Kiva loan, she is going to purchase more clothing to resell.
