Ketty Nagudi's Group's story

Ketty is a leader of 4 members. The fifth one passed away. Ketty is 37 years old and a single mother with 3 children, who are 15, 11 and 9 years old and all go to school. The community in which she lives and works is semi-urban and within a slum area. This area is prone to flooding in times of rains.

She has operated a salon and sold second hand shoes for 5 and 6 years respectively. The peak times for the shoes business are in the festive seasons and at the beginning of school terms. The challenges include high taxes, high rental fees, getting paid for what she sells on credit, and the flooded surroundings during the rains, which limit movement from one place to another. She brags of having an improved standard of living, and the ability to look after her family without having to depend on someone.

She intends to increase stock, buy a plot of land, and build a house so that she is relieved of paying rent for her house. Ketty has successfully paid back more than 10 loans.
