A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy electronics such as cables and bulbs to sell.

St Theresa Women Group's story

Alex is a 31-year-old married man with three children, living in Kasese, Uganda.

He has been dealing in electronics for two years. After realising that farming was seasonal and could not enable him to meet daily expenses, he decided to start his current business to supplement his agricultural activities. Like most traders, he is challenged by price fluctuations and inadequate capital to meet the high demand.

Alex intends to use the loan facility to buy electronics, such as cables and bulbs, to sell. He is a member of the above group, where each member guarantees the other in obtaining credit facilities. He has dreams of educating his children and having a big shop in town.

In this group: Alex, Naume, Stellah, Nelson, Charles, Dovico, Sylvia, Kiiza, Mary, Pulkeria, Birinedeta, Norah, Monday, Ndere, Kapere, Topher, Joachil, Emmanuel
