A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy salt to sell.


St Yowana Group's story

Proscovia is a thirty-five-year-old married woman with four children living in Kasese, Uganda. She has been selling salt for fourteen years. She also mines salt by herself and has salt pans on the lake. Her major challenge is the corrosive nature of the product leading to a high rate of wear and tear on the equipment, and that is why she prefers to buy from other salt miners. Proscovia intends to use the loan to buy salt to sell.

Like most responsible mothers she has dreams of educating her children up to the University and adding value to her business by processing the salt. She is a member of the group pictured above, where each member guarantees the others in accessing a loan.

In this group: Proscovia, John, Beatrace, William, Chrispus, Alozio
