Kwesitukira Group, Lugazi's story

N. Escalanda is a friendly old lady and the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a businesswoman who has managed a bar in her home area for so long. She mostly sells local brew as well as beers and some sodas in order to make the necessary profits from her business. She is also a farmer growing crops both for sale and for home consumption and this enables her to earn more. All of Escalanda’s children are old and working and she helps to take care of her grandchildren, some of whom are orphans. This is the main reason why she gets loans in order to be able to earn funds for financing her dependents’ education. Escalanda needs a loan to be able to buy more brew for resale, although some of it she makes herself.
