Rubaare Twimukye Tukore Group, Ntungamo's story

Used clothing is in high demand in Uganda. Jolly A., a hard-working and energetic woman of 30, has begun tapping into that demand by buying consignments of used clothing for resale. She is a member of the Rubaare Twimukye Tukore loan group, whose eight members we see here. Jolly has done very well with her business, as proved by the 160,000 Ugandan shillings she makes monthly. She is taking a long view and has drawn up a plan to expand her used clothing business into a much larger operation, and is applying for this loan to help make that expansion possible. Her goal is to be able to pay for the education of her four children, and help her family live a better life.
