A loan of $2,000 helped a member to invest more in her children's education.

Deborah Nanteza's Group's story

Deborah is a leader of 5 members. She is 46 years old and is divorced with 7 children, who are 30, 28, 22, 18, 16, 14 and 12 years old. The youngest four go to school. Her community is semi-urban. She has been operating a pub in the area for 14 years. Her challenges include stiff competition, getting payment for what she sells on credit and sometimes losing it, and high transport costs especially when she goes to the rural areas to collect local brew.

She says that the loans have helped to sustain her business for the 14 years, and enabled her to fend for the family. Her biggest dream is to educate all of her children to a high level. Another plan is to acquire a plot of land in order to build a house. She has successfully paid back more than 10 loans.
