Bulaale Butawuka Balimi Group's story

Fatumah is a member of Bulaale Butawuka Balimi Group. She is a 50-year-old, single lady who deals in firewood trade in Bulo town. She lives in a four-room, dilapidated house, together with six of her ten children and four grandchildren. Four of them attend school and it’s Fatumah who meets their basic needs as well as their school fee requirements from her hard-earned savings.

She began her firewood trade business eight years ago to acquire money and to support her family, after separating from her husband. In addition to the firewood trade, Fatumah also began a milk trade and now she needs money to buy more milk containers to preserve milk better, so that she can take her diary business to another level. She thinks this will enable her to meet her future dream of acquiring a plot of land and developing it for her family.
