Twesiga Mukama Group's story
Alex is a member of Twesiga Mukama group, literally translated "a group that trusts in God" which is comprised of 17 members who live in one of the city slums. Most of the women are single mothers and their main objective is to sensitize the community so that each member can find an income-generating activity and sustain their households as well as sending their children to school. Alex is a single mother of four children aged between 7 and 18 years. She fends for them singlehandedly after her husband abandoned her for another woman. She operates a food stall in Kironde cell and sells mainly to the inhabitants of the place. The stall is still small because she does not have enough capital and her family has to survive on the same. She wants UGX 500,000 to buy food items and also pay school fees. Her main challenge is limited working capital and yet food prices are high. Her dream is to see all her children educated despite their hardships. Alex is a very hard-working woman.
