A loan of $4,800 helped a member to purchase more crates of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to resell.

Mukisa Womens Group's story

Teddy has been operating her pub business for a decade now in a town known as Lugazi, which is situated in central Uganda. The town is famous for its sugar-making factories that supply Uganda's sugar. This town has been attracting laborers from all over Uganda. Most of these people are eagerly searching for means of survival. Lugazi has of late become quite a melting pot of all tribes from Uganda and for people of all persuasions. This influx of people has brought with it opportunities for many of Lugazi's indigenous people.

One person who rose to the occasion after sensing a great business opportunity is 40-year-old Teddy, a happy-go-lucky and humorous divorced woman who unfortunately, does not have any kids yet.

At her pub, her clients can stand a treat of great delicacies on top of the hard and soft beverages that she has on offer. She offers all sorts of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. On the side, Teddy has a farming business that she plies.

This business generates for Teddy 100,000 Ugandan shillings on a weekly basis as gross profits. The purpose of this Kiva loan, Teddy says, is to help her purchase more crates of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to resell.
