Jane Nabaale‘S Group's story

Jane is the leader of four members of a group. She is a 25-year-old, married with two children aged between 3 and 7 years. All her children go to school. She resides in and rents a one-room house where she lives with four people. Jane doesn’t take care of any additional family members. There is electricity but no piped water at her home and the family gets three meals a day. She resides and works in a semi-urban area which is in the outskirts of Kampala.

Jane operates a restaurant in Nakulabye, one of the Kampala surburbs. She sells to an average of 20 people a day and sells to all categories of people. She works six days a week. Jane buys all her food requirements from Nakulabye market and so doesn’t pay for extra transportation to and from shopping. Her major monthly expenses include rent for the business premises and for her residence. She has been in this business for the last two years. Her main challenge is the rainy season, which stops her customers from coming to her.

Jane has been with MCDT for over two years and is servicing her fourth loan, working all this time with the same group members. She wants to use this loan to buy more saucepans, plates and cups. She is aspiring to open another eating establishment.

In this group: Jane, Madina, Dezi, Regina
