but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy groceries to sell.

Nanziga Youth Group's story

Christine, a lady in this male-dominated group, operates a grocery business. She works 7 days a week, and has also dealt in farming since 2004. Her customers are community members. Her dream is to build her own house, while her challenge is bad debtors. She is hard working, honest and determined. She will use the loan money to buy charcoal for sell, and from the profits she will be able to cater for her family needs. She thanks the other group members, who are men, for contributing to her survival; they have encouraged her and motivated her, and even when she did not have any form of collateral security, the group guaranteed her and so now she is able to meet the basic needs of the family. The eleventh member is the group chairperson, who signed the waiver form but had acquired the loan in a different sub-group.
