Nile Group 1, Lugazi's story

N. Maine is the leader of her lending group in Jinja. She is a widow with seven children, all still in school, and she also takes care of three more dependants. For the last 12 years, Maine has had a business selling fresh bananas from Njeru trading center. Her major challenge is transporting goods to her stall. She is able to make 100,000 UGX as profits a week and attributes this to acquired trust from her customers and her good customer care skills.
