Kweterana Kakumiro Group's story

Edith is a hardworking 45-year-old married mother of seven children aged 9-26 years old. They live in Karuguuza Uganda. She is the leader of Kweterana Kakumiro group which is a group of hardworking mothers with a common goal. It should be noted that one of the members did not take a loan but as a group policy each member has to guarantee the other.

She looks after her family since her husband is a peasant and they live in a 5-room semi-permanent house with four of their children. Her family goal is to be able to pay fees for her children's school. She has a retail shop which she has been running for 24 years. With the income she has been able to provide the basic needs for her family and pay school fees.

However she faces a challenge of a high default rate of her debtors and she hopes in the future to upgrade her shop to a wholesale shop. Edith intends to use the credit to buy dry cereal, rice and groundnuts for sale.
