A loan of $1,350 helped a member to purchase a hair dryer and braids for her salon.


Prosper Development Group's story

Enterprising people who blaze trails as a means of gaining a new lease on life invariably act as role models for many people in societies across the globe. The same can be said of Uganda, which in recent times has seen many enterprising people set up their own businesses and thereby inspiring others. One such person was an aunt to 35-year-old Cissy K.. Cissy has for the past decade been operating a beauty salon business in Mpigi Town. She credits her aunt with a prevailing pep talk that, at length, led her to open up her own new business horizons. Cissy says hard work, resilience, courage and constant planning have been her stocks in trade. This mother of 4 was previously operating a restaurant. In addition to her beauty salon, Cissy also operates a modest retail shop business. Weekly, she says the businesses generates for her 100,000 shillings in profit. With this loan, she says she is going to purchase another hair dryer and more braids to be used in her salon. Cissy is affiliated with Prosper development Group-Mpigi.
