A loan of $2,200 helped a member to expand several small businesses.

Musana Kwebisaho, Ntungamo Group's story

K. Mariat, who leads this loan group, is a hard-working and optimistic 52-year-old mother with eight children who range in age from 11 to 25. She operates a business in the Kyangara Trading Centre, where she buys and sells coffee beans. She has been in this line of work for 20 years, and in that time has managed to significantly improve her family's living standards and pay to educate her children. By all appearances, her business is in good shape, and produces revenues of almost 500,000 Ugandan shillings a month. The prospects for growth also seem strong, which is why she is applying for a loan to buy more items to sell in her shop. By increasing her income, this loan will allow her to continue paying for her children's education, expand her business, and develop a small plot of land she owns into a profitable farm.

In this group: Mariat, Jackson, Medius, Godfrey, Joy, Dorcus, Nzenia, Sauda*
