Nakiboneka Sarah, Group Loan, ID: 38

She needs a group loan to purchase a popcorn machine. She has been operating the food stall business and retail shop for ten years. She has fully obtained experience in the various dynamics affecting the business but also aware of the areas can help the business to flourish. She attends to her food stall in the morning hours and leaves before noon every day. She said there are very few customers in the subsequent hours of the day. She also has a retail shop back at her home of residence which she attends to after working in the market. She plans to put the popcorn machine at her retail shop. The demand for popcorns is readily available among school going children and customers have been asking for them for so long. The machine runs on power and she normally experience power cuts like 3 times a week on an average of one hour per interval. This risk may affect the production flow of popcorns but she will produce more when power is available to ensure that sales are not affected.
