A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy more foodstuffs for her restaurant.


Scovia's Group's story

N. Scovia is the leader of Gambwa Akwata empola group2 in Mityana. She is a kind-hearted and hardworking lady with a restaurant as her business. Scovia has had the business for five years and she decided to join her lending group to improve her business. As a result, she has been able to buy more crates of sodas, saucepans, tables, chairs, forks, and spoons and this has enabled her to make more profit as compared to before the loans. Scovia is a married lady with seven children; five are still in school and the eldest two stopped in S.4 and started their own businesses due to lack of school fees. One child makes chapatti for sale by the roadside while the other is a motorcycle driver. Scovia’s husband is also a boda boda cyclist and together they ensure that their children are cared for. She also cares for her mother who stays nearby. With her share of the loan, Scovia hopes to invest in her business more by buying more foodstuffs.
