A loan of $3,975 helped a member to buy rice and sauce for her restaurant.


Mariam's Group's story

K. Mariam is the leader of Dembe group in Jinja. She is a married woman with a hotel/restaurant business that she has been running for six years. She has four children that are all in school. The family live on top of the restaurant. She is also a farmer and most of the foodstuffs that she prepares in her restaurant come from her garden, hence enabling her to save.


Mariam needs to stock more rice for her restaurant since she doesn’t have a rice plantation at the moment and also to buy more sauce for the same purpose. Getting loans has enabled her to increase her daily income as well as to learn how to manage her business and save.

In this group: Mariam, Yoweri, Shaban, Shaban, Mohammed, Idi, Ausi, Peter, Albert, Fred
