Kamu Kamu Women's Group's story

Winnie N. is the leader and member of the Kamu kamu women’s group in Lugazi, which she joined last year. She is 32 years old and is married with 4 children, but she also cares for an orphan belonging to her late brother. Her husband is a teacher in Lugazi and, together, their dream is to see their children receive the best education possible so that they can have a bright future.

She has a business whereby she buys smoked dry fish and mukene from the Senyi landing site and later sells such fish to her customers in Kinyoro and at the daily markets around Lugazi and Jinja. She is seeking a loan to expand her business by purchasing additional fish.
