Kikumbo Mixed Farmers S&c Group's story

Jennifer is a 37-year-old, married woman with four children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. She operates a drug shop and has been in this business for 10 years. She began the business with her own savings of 150,000 shillings and now her stock is worth 500,000 shillings. She has a challenge of customers not paying on time yet she has inadequate capital to purchase drugs. Her personal goal is building a permanent house for residence as she is currently living under a mud-wattled dwelling. Her business goal is expanding into new markets and owning a pharmacy. Jennifer intends to use the loan to buy drugs to sell. She is a member of the above-mentioned group where each member guarantees the other in accessing a loan and that is why they are 16 people in the photo even if 15 took the loan.

In this group: George Edgar, Jennifer, Agnes , Richard, Magret, Stephen, Edson, Gladys, Aidaya, Vincent, Valeria, Eflazio, Annet, Aida , Alice
