Betty's Group's story

N. Betty is the leader of her lending group in Jinja. She is a married woman with four children, three of whom are in secondary school and the last born is a baby. She also helps to take care of two in-laws including paying their school fees and general upkeep.

Betty has owned and managed a fruit and vegetable selling business in Namulesa for four years from which she is able to make 70,000/= of profits a week. She gets her produce from the villages and from her farm because she is a farmer herself and this helps her to have stock all the time and hence more customers.

Betty needs a loan to be able to buy more fruit and vegetables for resale and partly to pay school fees for her children. She is such a friendly and hardworking lady.
