Protazio's Group's story

Protazio Z. is one of the executive members of Kasenyanku group in Mpigi. He is a very hard-working man and has sixteen children, eleven of whom are in school. The rest are still young. Protazio has a shop that sells new clothes like gomesi (a puff-sleeved dress) for ladies, trousers for men and women, shirts, dresses and skirts. It is due to his hard work and determination that he was able to set up this shop, having worked in daily markets with no store of his own from which to sell his own goods. He is grateful to his customers for his business and to Pearl Microfinance, a Kiva field partner, for without them, he would be badly off. He is again asking for a loan to purchase additional inventory. His dream of having many shops selling the same goods still prevails.
