A loan of $2,825 helped a member to purchase more bales of used clothes for his business.


Kabweeza Intergrated Development A, Mubende Group's story

Second-hand clothes are in high favour with many people in Uganda. Not one to be left out of this lucrative opportunity presenting itself in his home area of Kyakato, Mubende, Emmanuel B., a hardworking, dependable and lively 52-year-old, made a decision to capitalize on it. With the money he saved conducting his other businesses, he bought his first consignment bales of used clothing.

Despite fluctuations in his business fortunes, Emmanuel's resilience has enabled him to make enormous headway, reflected by the fact that he earns 150,000 Ugandan shillings monthly. A man who likes taking a long view, he has drawn up a plan to expand his second-hand clothing business into a big franchise. With this loan, Emmanuel is optimistic he will be empowered financially to realize his dream as he anticipates fully educating all of his children and building a permanent house for his family.
