Tusooka Group (B)'s story

Khamis runs a restaurant that has been in operation for eight years and employs three people. Khamis’ restaurant sells local foods such as posho, matoke, rice, beans, fish and various types of meat. Posho is a starchy product made from corn flour and water. Matoke is made from unripe bananas that are steamed wrapped in banana leaves. Both are staples in the Ugandan diet.


Khamis provides for her four children, ages 15, 13, 4, and 3 months. She is requesting a loan in order to buy more foodstuffs for her restaurant. She has already bought the necessary equipment like tables, chairs, bowls and utensils, so she is now able to restock her food storage with her loans. She will now buy things like flour, beans, salt, sugar and other items that can be bought in large quantities.

In this group: Khamis, Rebecca, Grace, Rose, Fatumha, Eva, Marian, Ruth, Edith, Regina, Margaret, Jane, Harriet
