Betty's Group's story

Betty N. is the leader of the Nyikira Okole group in Kikajjo. She is a very hardworking 30-year-old mother of 2 children, aged 4 and 7, who also cares for 2 orphans belonging to her late sister. Betty has owned and operated the Seaman Bar for 3 years, and so far her business is good. It’s from the profits derived from the bar that she is able to pay school fees for her dependents plus their general care. She hopes to expand the bar with more space, and more beers and sodas, once she has access to the loan, since she hopes to buy a plot of land with the proceeds. She still has her hopes of one day owning a beer and soda depot to be able to supply other retailers.
