A loan of $1,375 helped a member to rent a stall to do her trade.

Kisaasi Mirembe Group's story

Sarah is 45 years old, a member of Mirembe group and a widow whose husband passed away in 2001. She was left her with six children, of which 5 go to school.

Sarah is a vendor dealing in the sale of secondhand clothes in various markets, especially in Kamwokya. This is how she is able to earn a living for her family. She started this business in 2003 after her husband passed away. Sarah’s clients are people who visit the markets and a few of her regular customers place orders for different clothes. Her dream is to have a permanent business place where her customers can find her on a regular basis and also to see her children having a bright future.

Her major obligations are paying school fees, feeding children and paying house rent for the family, among others.

Her major challenges are lack of enough capital to raise enough returns to meet her major obligations and the weather conditions, especially during rainy seasons since she works in an open place, which slows down the growth of her business.

Sarah is very hardworking, social, and honest. She will use part of the loan to rent a small stall in order to get a permanent working place and the balance will be used to add stock in her business in order to earn enough income to support her family and provide for all basic needs.
