Kakigani Twimukye Newer Group's story

Jane is a widow, age 35, from Kakigani, a suburb in Mbarara municipality. She dropped out of school and got married when she was young. At the age of 35 and with four children, the husband passed away leaving her with no source of income to support the family.

She acquired a loan of UGX 800,000 and started up a food stall in the market in order to survive and cater for her children. This business grew and helped her sustain her family.

Her business progressed with the help of Ugafode micro-finance loans, and this motivated her to mobilize her colleagues in the market to form a development group called Kakigani Twimukye group. This group has made their businesses prosper, and they are requesting loans to help them increase their business working capital to improve their standards of living.

Jane in particular will use the loan to buy more stocks of food stuff to sell.

In this group: Jane, Tofasi, Josephine, Miriam, David, Janansi, Salimah, Fred
