Jinja Agency Women's Group's story

K. Rashidah, the Chairperson for Jinja Agency Lending group, is an exception. She is a “hawker” and sells new clothes for young girls without a fixed location, but walks around busy markets and taxi parks carrying and selling them, a job she has done for 6 years. She is 50 years and married with 7 children, as she caters for 2 stepchildren and 4 grandies. Rashidah says life is good now, compared to when she was trading in used clothing, and she has been able to buy a fridge with the previous loan, stocked it with soda, and placed it in a friend’s shop.


With her portion of the group loan, she plans to buy more new girls’ clothing to sell, which she buys from Kampala, the capital city, as well as stock the fridge with more soda, beer and juice. She is really business oriented and respected as the group leader, and she has a 6 years’ experience with loans. Her dream is to be able to rent a store as her shop because moving around is not an easy job now that she is growing old.

In this group: Rashidah, Hasifah, George, Mutesi, Dauda, Sula, Amina, Joshua, Barbara, Peter, Joseph, Margaret, Monica, Margaret, Aisha, Sarah
