Joan's Group's story

Joan B. is the leader of her group in Kampala. She is 63 years old with 5 children.

Joan is a hard working lady with a 16-year-old crafts shop in Crafts Africa on Buganda Road, where she sells art and crafts. Her customers are mostly foreigners along with some community people. She caters to grandchildren and cousins as well.

She needs a loan to buy more crafts, although she makes some of them herself. The loan will also help her to look after her home.

Joan is grateful for her lending group because she is able to access loans through it and it teaches its members the disciplines of saving and teamwork.

In this group: Joan, Sella, Sharon, Safina
