Lydia's story

Lydia is 32 years old, is single, and has three children aged between 5 and 13 years. In addition to her children she looks after her siblings who are orphans. She lives in rented accommodation in Hoima, Uganda, and describes her household as an extended family.

Lydia is into a restaurant business and has been in it for seven years. She started by selling secondhand clothes and then later changed to her restaurant business. The biggest challenge she has is that her customers eat on credit and then default on the payment. Lydia expects, in future to, acquire a TV, a fridge and a fan for her business. However, her family goal is to build her own home and stop renting. The purpose of the loan is to buy a plot of land to build on.
