Fatumah's Group's story

Fatumah is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a determined, hard-working lady with a three-year-old brewing business that she runs from her home. She brews waragi (distilled from bananas, cassava, millet or sugar cane), tonto (green bananas and roasted sorghum) and malwa (millet). She sells her brews mostly to bar owners but also to customers who prefer to take them home. She uses her savings and profits to cover most of her and her children’s needs.


Since she is wholly in charge of paying her children’s school fees, Fatumah is requesting a loan to help pay for these particular costs. She will use her profits from her successful brewing business to pay back her loan.

In this group: Fatumah, Christopher, Diana, Gorret, Florence, Regina, Fred
