Ghokale Women's Group, Jinja's story

W. Monica, shown at the top left in the small photo, also appears in the big group photo and she is the leader of her lending group in Jinja. She is 48 years old and married with five children in both primary and secondary sections. Monica has operated a business buying and selling goats and cows from Ivunamba village for six years from which she is able to make 100,000/= as weekly profits. Her biggest challenge is the scarcity of animals, hence making them expensive for her customers to buy from her. Monica’s hard work, and ensuring that she has the necessary stock, attracts her customers and her dream is to ensure that she is able to supply the whole of Jinja town as well as educate her children to the university level. Monic needs a loan to be able to buy more goats for resale and this will increase her capital base.
