Hellen's Group's story

K. Hellen is the leader of her first lending group in Mukono. She is 31 years old and a business lady with a hardware shop that she has owned for the past year in Nabuti. She wishes to use her loan to expand and buy more products such as paints and nails to earn additional profits. At the moment, she makes weekly profits worth 50,000. However, this is still too little profit; consequently, she wishes to grow her business. Hellen has a family, including her husband and three children, aged one to nine, and she wants to see them grow into responsible people with good education.

In this group: Hellen, Annet, Sarah, Florence, Janet, Deborah, Grace, Barbara, Agnes, Florence
