A loan of $1,350 helped a member to expand businesses.

Lucy's Garden Group's story

Lucy, age 48, is the single parent of 3 children (ages 18, 20 and 22). She runs a nursery school for small children, which she started in July 1998. She works managing the school from 7:30am to 5pm daily. This business brings her a monthly profit of about $70. She has a dream of starting a primary school one day.

In the past, Lucy took out a loan to buy aluminum for the roof of the school. Having paid this loan back successfully, she now hopes for a new loan to increase her school's services. She will share this loan with her subgroup, who have businesses dealing in food, clothing, and timber sales.

In this group: Lucy, Avelina, Christina, Sabrina, Mwajuma, Hilda
