A loan of $900 helped a member to expand vegetable-selling business.

Butangala B Group's story

The leader of this small group is Justine B.. She sells vegetables and is requesting a loan to expand her business. Justine is 32 years old and is married. Her husband works as a commercial motorcyclist. She has 4 children, ranging in age from 2 months to 11 years old, and 3 children go to school.

Each week, Justine makes approximately 7000 UGX (about $4) profit. With the extra profits from her loan, she hopes to be able to repay the loan and also pay school fees for the children. In the past, Justine had a loan from BRAC Uganda for 70000 UGX (about $40) in order to invest in her business and the loan was paid back on time.

Justine is joined in her small group by Sauda N., Claire S., and Safina N.. Sauda N. has a retail shop and wants to increase the stock. Claire S. also has a retail shop and wants a loan to add more inventory. Safina N. has a restaurant and wants to purchase more furniture and kitchen utensils.

In this group: Justine, Sauda, Calire, Safina
