A loan of $5,000 helped a member to purchase more retail commodities to resell.


Kandahar Clusters Group's story

Marion, 37 years old, is a happily married mother of 5 who began her general merchandise retail business in 2000, having taken it over from her deceased parents. At first, there was apprehension and disquiet from the rest of the family over her decision to take over the business so hastily. With time, however, she has been vindicated as she provides for not only her 5 children but also for some other members of her family with the business's earnings. The many successes she has registered are due to her diligence, determination, steadfastness, tenacity and prayers.

Marion has a fondness for farming, an activity she did before she took up retailing. She still finds time, especially on the weekends, to do some farming and she normally delegates the responsibility of running the shop to her sister. Her monthly sales profits total up to UGX 200,000. The purpose of this loan is to enable Marion to make substantial purchases of more retail commodities such as sugar, rice, plastics, salt, beans, toothbrushes, Colgate, soap, bread, etc. to ultimately resell.
