Tubulwanyise Naluvule Group's story

A retail enterprise is what this 54-year-old father of nine has been banking on for the last 15 years to earn his keep. Badru principally sells a variety of general merchandise, for example, sugar, salt, maize flour, plastics, paraffin, beans, ballpoint pens, exercise books, etc. He plies his trade in the metropolis of Kampala.

A checkered experience is what he expected at the inception of his business. The last 15 years have been marked by fluctuations in his fortunes. The bad times have not caught him off balance and in the good times, he has kept his feet on the ground. Remaining philosophical in the face of hard times has been a stock in trade he has reckoned on to weather the storms in his business transactions.

His retail shop has been doing good business owing to the good reputation he has and the fact that he meets the demand of his customers. Weekly his business's sales profits are to the tune of Uganda shillings 75,000. Badru also subsists on side income from his small farming business.

He says this Kiva loan will be used for the purchase of more retail goods to resell.
