Nulu Nakakande‘S Group's story

Nulu is the leader of the five members of the group. She is 48 years old and married with three children aged between 23 and 30. They are all married. She resides in and owns a five-roomed house where she is staying with four people. Nulu doesn’t take care of any additional family members. There is electricity but no piped water at her home. The family gets three meals a day. She resides and works in a semi urban area which is in the outskirts of Kampala.

Nulu runs a hotel in Wankulukuku, one of the city suburbs. She sells meals to an average of 30 people a day, and works seven days a week. Nulu’s major monthly expenses include rent for the business, electricity and medication. She doesn’t incur extra transport cost to and from shopping as she buys from her place of work. She has been in this business for the last six years and sells to all categories of people. Her main challenges are increasing prices of meat and competition. Prior to this business Nulu sold sugar cane.

Nulu has been with MCDT (Micro Credit for Development and Transformation) for over five years and is requesting her twelfth loan, working all this time with the same group members. She wants to use this loan to pay rent for her business premises and also to buy more food for her restaurant. Nulu is aspiring to own two eating joints in town.
