A loan of $3,400 helped a member to purchase more drugs to stock in his pharmacy.

Kanyinya Bee Keepers Group B's story

Philman, age 35, operates a drug pharmacy business. It is his steadfastness and strong-willed tenacity that has allowed for his longevity in this increasingly competitive business.

The father of seven says that starting this business was his means to an end in his narrow circumstances. His business did not get off to a flying start, but through diligence and resolve, he made strides gradually. He has managed to give a good account of himself these last 13 years, notwithstanding the inevitable adversity that comes with running any kind of successful business. His gross monthly income totals up to 350,000 Ugandan shillings.

Before he set forth in this business, he was mostly involved in agriculture.

Philman anticipates making further in-roads in his business once he receives his portion of this Kiva loan. He intends to use the loan funds to purchase more drugs to stock in his pharmacy.
