Hadijah's Group's story

N. Hadijah is the leader of her lending group in Kayunga. She is a 47-year-old widow taking care of her 11 children plus four other dependents. She's had a business of selling food, mostly matooke (medium size green fruit like a plantain), at the Kayunga Central market for two years and is able to make weekly profits amounting to 30,000. She buys the matooke mostly from villages far and near and she ensures that she has quality produce in her stall for sale.

She has a dream of starting up a poultry business whereby she will be selling the chicken herself from the market hence maximizing profits. At the moment, Hadijah needs a loan to be able to stock more matooke for enlarging her business. This will enable her to save enough for her children’s education and welfare.

In this group: Hadijah, Annette, Sirajje, Halima, Harriet, Justine, Rebecca, Faridah, Robinah, Harriet, Aisha*, Mohammed, Sirajje*
