Tendo Winner's Group's story

Retailing is one business genre that appeals to many prospective business people in Uganda. By and large, many Ugandans find this kind of business much easier to start up and maintain unlike other business sectors, which require substantial start up and operating capital.

One Ugandan who has found retail trading worthwhile the last two decades is 54 year old Wilfred, who is a widower and father of 5, and who operates in Kayunga. Wilfred sells a variety of general merchandise retail commodities such as sugar, salt, plastics, rice, beans, cooking oil, bread, etc. Wilfred also does agriculture as a side source of income. 190,000 Ugandan shillings is what this business generates for him on a monthly basis.

With this kiva loan, Wilfred says he is going to purchase more retail commodities such as sugar, beans, rice, maize flour, cooking oil and bread to resell in his shop.
