The savings culture saves one from a rainy day

Epaphrodite Mukamusana is currently a successful woman and her success started after joining a women’s association- which helped her to contribute to her business in the market. With time business started booming and she has since been one of those visible traders in Bulinga trading center.

The continuous boom in business compelled her to start making savings in the local saving and credit schemes in which she also got support from her husband.

She has now built a commercial business premise (worth Rwf2m) near Rugendabari sector offices- it is the only center in the area that provide photocopying services, hair treatment and restaurant services.

With this at her disposal, Mukamusana says that she no longer depends on her spouse and can afford the health and education expenses for the entire family.

She calls on other rural women to always focus on their goals in life and work hard with savings at all times in order to succeed.
