Katenga Turibamwe Group's story

Joy is a member of Katenga Turibamwe group, which is in Katenga sub-county - Mitooma district. She has borrowed two times from UGAFODE Micro-finance and hopes to get another loan of 500,000 (Five hundred thousand shillings) to boost her goats trading business which she has done since 1999.

Joy also sells bananas, which gives her additional income to cater for the needs of her family. She does the business in a rural area in Kakyera1 - Bitooma, and her clients are consumers and fellow traders.

She has high hopes that her business will expand and she will be able to make more profits.

Joy describes herself as an honest and trusted business partner but says her business still faces a challenge of inadequate capital, though she hopes that this will be no more if the loan is given and she buys the goats when the prices are still low.

In this group: Miriel, Joy, Middy, Christine, Elly, Ziporah
