Alikisiima Scc Group's story

Catherine, a 69-year-old married woman, is a member of Alikisiima Scc Group. She is in need of a loan to pay school fees for her 3 grandchildren to enable them to take end of term II tests. She lives in Kibaale, Uganda with eleven biological children, all through with education, but takes care of an extra 3 grandchildren who are helpless. Due to the need to help her grandchildren who are studying, raising the required school fees is becoming very difficult therefore calling for the joint efforts to make sure they stay in school.

As a loving and caring parent, she started businesses to earn her income, like farming for commercial purposes and rearing of domestic animals like goats and pigs. This is in order to generate income to supplement her husband's income, especially to pay school fees for the children. She also does arts and crafts like weaving baskets and mats to earn income.

The couple works together since they live together, but their capital employed is too small to cover all the family needs, which leads to the use of borrowed funds to pay later in installments.
