Bwanda Bakyara Kwetungura Group B's story

34-year-old Enid is a retail businesswoman who plies her trade in Rukungiri town in western Uganda. The mother of three began her business 10 years ago with savings from her farming business. The farming business, which she runs on the side, is pivotal to her business in the sense that she reinvests most of her food sales profits into her retail business. This means she constantly restocks her retail business with commodities when demand is high at her shop and when she is running short on commodities. This is one factor that helps her business stand in such a good stead and makes her confident about the future prospects of her trade. This, in combination with her diligence and will power, are sure shot winning calling cards. Enid also does some goat and pig husbandry. Monthly, she says, this business generates her sales revenue totaling up to Ugandan shillings 150,000. With this Kiva loan, Enid says she is going to purchase more retail commodities such as sugar, salt, cooking oil, maize flour, etc to resell.
