Katusenvule Group, Lugazi's story

S. Isma is the leader of his group in Lugazi. He is a married man with five children, all of whom are in primary school. In total, he takes care of six dependants.

For the past six years, Isma has been in the business of selling produce, mostly beans and maize from Buloba. He admits that his main challenge is not having enough capital, although he is trying to fight this with the help of loans. He is able to make 35,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) in weekly profits and, once he enlarges his business, he hopes to increase this amount.

Isma needs a loan to be able to buy more beans and maize for resale, since such transactions help his business expand. He has worked hard to win his customers’ trust. His major goal is to ensure that he is able to pay his children’s school fees to the highest level of education. He would also like to build houses for them as they grow up.

In this group: Isma , Ronah, Lillian, Harriet, Rose, Esther, Bruno, Mariam, Nathan, Hakamadah, Florence, Sarah, Kasifah, Peter*, Margaret, Joseph*, Swayibu*
