Thank you for helping make Gauda's dream a reality

Gauda in her shop!
Gauda is a 71-year-old grandmother from Nyaruhanga village. Gauda stays with one grandchild who lost both their parents. Gauda was lucky to benefit from the revolving fund given to her granny group. She was able to borrow 300,000UGX (84.45USD) and use it to start a retail business in a trading Centre. Gauda always had a dream of starting a retail shop to sell items like food (fruits, soft drinks and some dry crops like beans, peas and ground nuts) and household goods. This type of small and easier going business is ideal for Gauda since she is older in age and suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure. Gauda’s business keeps her active since she no longer has the physical ability to do gardening on her own, but she is able to utilize casual laborers in her garden to plant crops like maize, beans and ground nuts on a small scale. The continuation of her garden provides food for her family and also allows her to sell any extras in her retail shop. Gauda is able to repay her loan using the income she gets from her small coffee garden.
