Betty's Group's story

L. Betty is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is married with three children ages 16-22 years old, who are all in school, and she takes care of her siblings.

Betty has a retail shop on the Lugazi market street and although there is a lot of competition from other sellers, she is able to make 50,000/= (shillings) as weekly profits that help her sustain her family, with the help of her husband.

Betty is so grateful for her loans because they enable her to have increased stock as well as having quality products for sale. She sells carpets and bags in her shop plus belts and she would need a loan to be able to restock her shop.

In this group: Betty, Hamida, Male, Umaru, Rebeccah, Harriet, Edward, Noelina
