Sarah N. has a retail shop in Katosi that has been in business since 1992. She is a widow with four children and she cares for three orphaned children, including paying their school fees, clothing, medical care and shelter. She has been our client for ten years as a member of Kewerimidde women’s group; she has had a 100% loan repayment rate. Her dream is to transform her shop into a wholesale venue but because she is still paying too much in school fees, it’s not a thing for tomorrow. Still, she has hope through hard work and determination. She would like a loan to help her buy more goods for her shop (sugar, cooking oil, soap, rice, maize flour) and to complete the construction of additional commercial rooms for rent, which are just next to her shop.
