Cissy's Group's story
M. Cissy, 45, is the leader of Knowledge group 2 in Bushenyi. She is a business lady who, for twelve years, has had a business selling beans in Nyakabirizi. Her business was mostly affected by limited capital until she joined her lending group. Cissy has a store in the Township and her dream is to have the biggest of its kind in the area since at the moment, she is only able to make profits of 70,000/= per month. Cissy is a widow with three children aged 20, 17 and 15 years at the university and the last 2 in secondary school. She also cares for her only stepchild. Cissy needs a loan to help purchase more beans for resale; and in most cases, her loans also help with clearing her children’s school fees.
