Kyabugimbi Abamwe Traders Group's story

Amina is one of the members of Kyabugimbi Abamwe Traders Group. She has been in the group for two years and has borrowed twice, through the same group. She is married, and she has six children and one other dependant. All the six children go to school, and she believes they will have quality education. Her major source of income is agricultural produce trading, which she has done for the last two years. In addition to the produce business, she also sells second-hand clothes, which gives her additional income. She works six days in a week and she gives the business an average of seven hours per day. Her business is located in a busy trading centre.

Amina plans to use her part of the loan money, UGX700,000 (Seven hundred thousand shillings), to buy more produce for sale. Her customers are both males and females from the same locality, who trade produce. Her main challenge is the weather, which changes and sometimes causes her shortages. She describes herself as a hard-working person who has hopes of developing, especially if the loan is given to her.
