A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy bananas for sale.

Kyambura Bakyara Tukwatanise Group's story

Zabibu is a member of Kyambura Bakyara Tukwatanise Group and a mother of five children aged between twelve and twenty-two years. Zabibu also looks after four other children who are orphans to her late brother. She is determined to see all her biological children and the four orphans through school.

Zabibu is a businesswoman trading in bananas, a business she started in 1996 with the purpose of getting money, which she would use to develop her family. Her business is located in the Kyambura trading centre and the people in the trading centre are her major customers.

Zabibu works throughout the week and when she is away from her stall, she is in the field looking for markets. Her hard work and her honesty in business have helped her greatly to grow the business; by doing this she gains customer loyalty.

Zabibu is challenged by the stiff competition in the area she operates in but she is hopeful that if she gets a loan she will be able to buy more stock and make bigger sales, which will help her business to grow to greater heights.

Pictured is the group, but the lady at the extreme right is the area Councillor who mobilized the group. Although she is not taking the loan, she signed the waiver for it. She thanks UGAFODE for serving the needs of her community.

In this group: Rajab, Zabibu, John Kennedy, Ratibu, Suraina, Zamu, Fatima, Sidati, Hadijah, Ricia, Nuriat, Nicholus
