Victoria Group 5, Lugazi's story

N. Flista is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a widow with eleven children and ten dependents.

Flista has a business selling matooke (green plantain) in Kiyindi. She says that her challenge is that at times the matooke is too expensive hence reducing the number of customers, leading to some of her food ripening.

Flista has been in the business for seventeen years and she has been able to introduce the sale of charcoal to her business, hence increasing her income. She hopes to expand her business further as well as educating all her children.

Flista needs a loan to help with purchasing more matooke and charcoal for business sustainability.
