Makindye Development Group's story

Seguya is 45 and the happily married mother of five buoyant and high-spirited kids who all go to schools in and around Kampala. For the last five years, she has run a used clothing business in the biggest market in Kampala. Seguya says she has been able to provide for her family with earnings from this business. As anyone in Kampala would testify, business in this boisterous market is good and the market is highly popular with all communities in Kampala. In addition, other people from Uganda frequently visit it to buy the cheap second-hand commodities that are sold there.

Seguya began her business under the financial auspices of her brother and she currently generates a monthly profit of 700,000 UGX. She is requesting a loan to purchase more bales of used clothing to sell. This is a group loan, and one of the clients, named Aisha, is partly obscured in this photo and another client, named Moses, is not pictured. Seguya, who is the lead client of this group, is in the front row wearing a red t-shirt.

In this group: Seguya, Teddy, Daisy, Margeret, Maria, Aisha*, Joyce, Moses*, Gorretta, Resty, Joyce, Milly
