Resilient Harriet

Previously, Harriet’s business involved selling bananas from her home. After receiving her IGA grant and business advice, she increased her banana stock and developed a new mobile way of selling the fruit in the Namatala slum and at designated market areas in Mbale town – rather than simply from home. This has boosted her turnover and profits.

Harriet buys her bananas from the mountain villages of Mbale at wholesale prices. She faces challenges of inaccessible roads during rainy seasons, which makes it hard for her to have enough regular stock.
