A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy food items to resell.

Talemwa Development Group's story

Anything which is counter-productive to her business interests, like ineptitude and lack of pro-activeness and pre-disposition to bad business day moods, is something 34-year-old Scovia invariably wants to steer clear of. Her chequered experience in her food sales business has brought her to terms with many requisite business ideals and precepts. She plies her trade in Lugazi.

This happily married mother of 5 is thrilled to bits and she says she was pep-talked by a close friend before she set forth in this business. Prior to that, she was preoccupied by farming. Weekly, her gross sales returns are to a total of Uganda shillings 70,000. She intends to utilize this Kiva loan to purchase more food, to wit-bananas, maize, beans, rice, cassava, etc. to resell.
