A loan of $1,375 helped a member to buy soda, salt, cooking oil, paraffin and soap to sell.


St Veronica Group's story

Mary, a 33-year-old married woman with five children living in Kasese, Uganda, has been operating a retail shop for four years and also earns a salary as a civil servant. Realizing that her meager government salary could not help her meet the needs of her family, she began the business. Like most retail shop owners she faces the challenges of price fluctuations and license fees, while her dream is to own a wholesale shop.

Mary intends to use her portion of the loan to buy soda, salt, cooking oil, paraffin and soap to sell. She is a member of St. Veronica's Group, whose members guarantee each other's loan repayments.

In this group: Mary, Defrosa, Janerose, Eva, Francis, Mary, Jane, Naume, Teddy
