Amisi's story

Amisi is a 34-year-old single mother of three children who owns a house in Kasese, Uganda. The responsibility to look after the children solely rests on her and her dream is to educate her children. She has been dealing in second hand clothes for five years. She started with 500,000 shillings and now has 2,000,000 shillings. Her hardship is bad debts and her vision is setting up another boutique in town. Amisi needs the loan facility to buy clothes to sell.
