Jennifer Kemigisha`s Group's story

Jennifer is the leader of the group of five members who have stayed together since they joined MCDT. They are repaying their fourth loan. She is 30 years of age and a widow who has just lost her husband through an accident. He left her with 2 biological children 8 and 4 years old, and his own 16-year-old daughter. She left school due to pregnancy. Both of her children attend in school. Jennifer never had any loans until she joined MCDT. The community she lives in is urban within a slum in a low-lying area.

Jennifer has a retail shop and sells essential items and cold drinks. She acquired a refrigerator and a television set to attract more clients. She has many customers.

The main challenge is the flooded surroundings during the rainy season. The benefits of having her retail shop include being able to take her children to school, increased working capital, and providing for her family.

With a loan, Jennifer plans to acquire a public pay telephone. Her daughter will operate the phone, and this will increase their income. She also plans to build a house on the plot of land that her late husband left.
