A loan of $3,800 helped a member increasing inventory.

Philly's Group's story

Philly L. is 27 years old and the leader of his group in Lugazi. He has been running his shop for 10 years and uses all the profits generated from the business to pay the school fees of his brothers and sisters (he has 4 sisters and 1 brother). At his shop one can find a variety of items, including, but not limited to, soap, biscuits, cola and shoe polish.

Recently the prices of goods have gone up, so Philly has had to raise the prices in his store. This is affecting business adversely, but Philly is confident that sales will soon recover. In the meantime, he would like to use the loan to maintain his inventory. "The competition is tough," Philly says; in order to retain his customer base he has to offer incentives, like a free sweet with a purchase larger than 5,000 USH. Philly is incredibly hardworking and hopes that he will be able to continue supporting the education of his siblings, even at the university level.

In this group: Philly, Grace, Gladys, M, Aida, Janepher, Milly, Henry, David, R, Sarah, Ronnie*
