A loan of $325 helped a member to move to a shop.

Donah Tusiime`s Group's story

Dona is the leader of 5 members. She is aged 25 and married with 1 child who goes to school. He is 5 years old. She is servicing her first loan. She resides in a slum area, which is vulnerable to flooding when it rains.

She sells cosmetics in one of the taxi parks in the city center of Kampala. She has done this for 2 years.

The main challenges include the effects of weather on her and on what she sells, although she does it under an umbrella. Some of the cosmetics react with the heat and they become poisonous. Some of them look like old stock after a short time and clients reject them. The taxes levied by the authorities push the high prices yet higher. She would like to move to a shop.

In this group: Donah, Zaina, Zula, Nusifa, Mariam
