Christine's Group's story

(In the small photo, Christine was not in the group photo but a member of the group)
B. Christine is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is 25 years old and married with 1 child aged 3 years and in Nursery section as she takes care of her siblings. She is a tailor in Nakazadde and it’s the competition that enables her to succeed since she knows what she is doing. Before the tailoring business, she had a video library and changed two years ago and she is not regretting. She is able to make 30,000/= as profits a week and she hopes this will increase more because of the quality work she does. Christine has a dream of becoming a supplier of sewing machines as well as building a residential house for her children. She needs a loan to help add more capital in her business by buying more clothing materials for a steady supply. Christine is such a hard working and determined lady and I believe she will make it in future.
