Beatrice's Group's story

N. Beatrice is the leader of Balisiima group in Lugazi. She is 29 years of age and the mother of a child aged 8 years who is in Primary 3. Beatrice has a stall that she has been running for eight years, ever since she divorced her husband. She sells tomatoes, egg plant, green and yellow bananas, and so on. This is her 13th loan with her lending group and so far she has no regrets because she has been able to increase the stock on her stall, as well as buying a plot of land and building her own house, as well as caring for her child single-handedly. She also has staying with her, her young brother for whom she pays school fees. She is happy that, in addition to her persistence and hard work, the loans have made all this possible. Beatrice needs a loan to help with restocking her stall with more produce and partly to pay school fees for her young ones.
