Bugolo Lending Group's story

Tausi N. is the chairperson of the Bugolo Lending Group in Kikondo, Lugazi. She is 42 years old and married with sx children, and also cares for two more kids. One of the children is an orphan and one is her step-child. They are both in school along with three of her kids.

Tausi's business is buying "mukene" (small silvery fish) from Kikondo to sell in the Tororo district. She's quick to say that the transport costs are worth it because each time she has to move she takes around 80 basins of fish, which she can buy for $400.00 and then sell for $500.00. She can't earn this profit margin if she is stationed at Kikondo in her area. She says the loans have really been helpful because she's been able to stop renting. She would now like a loan to expand her business and buy another plot for farming.

In this group: Tausi, Sanyu, Sarah, Eunice, Faridah, Musa, Rehemah, Nambi, Enock, James, Fatumah, Abdul, Hamidah, Zam
