Harriet's story

Harriet is a married woman with five children living in Nakibizi-Buikwe district.

She operates a boutique selling new clothes as her source of income. Harriet started small, dealing in second-hand clothes, but through hard work and reinvesting in the business, she grew her business and began selling new clothes. They were profitable because second-hand clothing had a lot of competition.

The festive season almost depleted Harriet's stock, yet she's used the profits to pay school fees. She wants to fully stock her boutique so she can meet the high demand. However, her working capital is insufficient.

She's applied for a loan to buy clothes to sell. The season isn't the best, but she's still confident her sales will be high, thus bringing in more returns. Harriet appreciates the support that will further boost her business.
