Christine's Group's story

Christine N. is a 40-year-old married lady with four children, with the eldest being 18 years old and in secondary school. She also helps to take care of two orphans who are also in school.

Christine has had a butcher shop in Kisowera trading centre for five years and she is able to make 100,000UGX in profit a week. She employs a man to help her with the cutting of the meat in pieces for sale, although at times, she does the work herself.

She has a plan to buy a plot and build her own house so that she can stop renting and save that for future developments. Christine needs a loan to help buy more meat for her butcher shop so that she could make more profit. She is such a friendly and easy-to-approach lady, and this keeps her going.
