The World Bank is satisfi ed about the way the Second Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF2) is faring so far and has described it as one of the successful projects it is funding in Uganda.

SALON BUSINESS BOOSTED BY NUSAF

Grace Ageno readily smiles when I ask for a picture of her weaving hair of a customer. “You ask her,” she quips, shifting the burden to her client who joins in with a soft laugh.

However, not even the small distraction of taking their picture disturbs the twisting and rapid movements of her fi ngers as she goes about her duty.
