Cate's Group's story

Cate B. is a group leader. She is a 60-year-old lady and a widow with four children between 28 and 35 years old. She is a strong and hard-working lady who has managed to provide an education for her children – even the least educated is a Diploma holder. She also takes care of three grandchildren. She has been a businesswoman involved in the sale of matooke (green bananas) from Mukono for 10 years now and she is able to make 35,000 UGX in weekly profits. She hopes to open up other branches that could earn more income to help pay for her grandchildren’s school fees and furnish her home. Cate needs a loan to help purchase matooke in order to expand her business and increase profitability.
