Tusuubira Group 2, Lugazi's story
Yayeli K. is the leader of her loan group in Lugazi. She is divorced from her husband, with five children all still in school as she takes care of her other siblings. She is a business lady dealing in the sale of agricultural produce, although sometimes she is faced with the scarcity of the produce to sell due to the ever changing seasons. She says that she has found great value in her loans because they have enabled her to have enough stock as well as having quality produce to sell. She hopes to become a wholesaler in future so that she can supply to fellow traders as well as build a house for her children for comfort. Yayeli needs a loan to be able to buy more matooke, cassava, sweet potatoes, and greens for resale.
