Hajara Namugenyi's Group's story

Hajara, age 48, is the leader of this 5-person group. Hajara is married with 5 children. Their ages range from 13 to 6. All of them are in school.

She is servicing a loan for 800,000 shillings. She buys goats and sheep from villages for sale to butchers. The challenges she faces are the long distances she has to travel to the villages; the high transport costs; that sometimes the animals die on the way; that quarantines due to breakouts of animal diseases cause increases in prices; fatigue; and staying away from home for 3 or 4 days in a week.

Her benefits include being able to take her children to school and providing for her family. She plans to start buying cows for her business and for keeping at home. She also plans to build a house to move from the wetland. Hajara has paid back over 10 loans successfully to MCDT in the past.

In this group: Hajara, Gladys, Betty, Hadija, Hasfa
