Bisoboka Group 1, Lugazi's story

N. Margaret is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a hard working and devoted lady with a business of selling matooke “green bananas” from Buwundo and Kizigo trading centres. She is a single mother with 2 children and she takes care of her other siblings, and she is grateful that the loans have helped her cope. She buys her matooke from the trucks and from the farmers in her surrounding villages and this helps her to have enough stock for her customers which is of good quality. She needs a loan to be able to stock more bunches of matooke to her stall since this will give her more profits after the sales to cater for other needs.

In this group: Margaret, Prossy, Patrick, Rebecca, Eseza, Richard, Jenifer, Hadijah, Madina
