Jamirah has a stall at her home made of poles in the sides and its grass thatched. She sells bananas, egg plants, tomatoes, cassava, sweet potatoes, and rice among other related items. She buys her items from nearby villages like Kituza, Ntakafunvu and others while selling them to passersby and residents of Namaiba plus Lubugumu. Jamilah makes sales of at least 20,000/= per day with profits of 4000/=. She expects the loan to enable her stock rice in large quantities and sell to a large market this Christmas season and after so as to sustain her family as well as paying school fees for her children.
Jamilah never went to school because at the age of 6, she was taken to look after her grandmother who was blind, she stayed there until her grandmother died. When she had made 11years, she went to her mother’s place until she met her husband and got married now with 7 children. Her husband is a carpenter in Namaiba but what forced her to start working was because her husband could not provide her with everything she wanted so she started with millet selling which she did for one year and later opened up a stall selling vegetables rice and for 6 years.
