Kutesa B Development Group's story

Getting into the good graces of prospective and established clients in any business undertaking is by and large a process that involves good rapport building, exceptional service and, at times, the offering of free service. In the course of the past 12 years, Sarah has exhibited all that as she goes about her clothing sales business at her boutique, just a stone's throw away from Kampala.

To start this business, Sarah, a good-natured mother of 4, banked on capital from her already established rental business. Sarah carries the conviction that there is invariably a silver lining in whatever bad unfolds. She has used this philosophy to extricate herself out of the narrowest of circumstances. This attribute, in combination with the fact that she works painstakingly and diligently hard, is a stock in trade that she says has played very much in the favor of her business.

Sarah has also been operating under the financial auspices of her husband, who often spares time to help at her boutique. In many respects, this has also contributed to the stability of her business. On the side, Sarah ekes out supplementary income from a rentals business. Her weekly gross income totals up to UGX 200,000. Sarah says this Kiva loan will come in handy to purchase more clothes to resell
