Senyi Tusitukirewamu Group's story

Rose, 50, says anybody who believes can notch up something worthwhile in whatever they do. Rose believed she could be a business owner and she had the markings to have success at her grasp. This was 20 years ago. To get her food sales business on its feet, Rose had to play many trump cards. That belief in her own worth was, needless to say, already playing in her favor, but she needed to back it up with hard work, determination and building relationships with many people including potential money lenders. Once the stage was set, she took root and has never looked back. She sells foods such as bananas, cassava, maize, beans, rice, etc. in food markets in Lugazi. Rose also does farming as a side source of income. Weekly, her food sales business is worth 100,000 net profits. With this loan, she says she is going to purchase more foods such as maize, cassava, cabbage, rice, beans to resell.
