Suzan Namukasa’S Group's story

Susan is a 30-year-old married woman with six children between the ages of 4 and 16. All her school go to school. She resides in and owns a three-roomed house, where she is staying with eight people. The family has access to electricity but no piped water.

She owns a retail shop, where she sells all day-to-day essentials. She pays for transport costs to and from where she buys her merchandise in Kikuubo, one of the busiest places in Kampala. On average she receives 20 customers a day. She works in the outskirts of Kampala. She has been in this business for six years and with MCDT for 10 years. She is servicing her 17th loan, working with the same group mates.

Her monthly expenses include school fees and medication. Her challenges include defaulters and the rainy season, because when it rains, very few customers come to her retail shop because it is in a muddy place. Susan wants to use this loan to buy more merchandise like boxes of soap, cartons of salt, sacks of sugar and jerrycans of cooking oil. She aspires to see her business grow stronger and to start selling only on a wholesale basis.
