Tusakimu Group Masajja's story

Tusakimu development group was formed by the group members with the aim of developing their families and the community. The group is comprised of both men and women. Betty, a group member, is a married mother of four children, all in school. Her main source of income is selling shoes from market to market, assisted by her husband. They do this to pay tuition and meet the necessities of their children. Their dream is to build a house of their own before their years advance. Her main challenge is working in the open where she is inconvenienced by weather changes. It gets either too hot or rainy at times, dislocating her business. Despite the challenges, she is positive that the situation will change and they will be able to find a permanent place to sell their stock.

In this group: Josephine, Jane, Margret, Erisam, Betty, Robert, Swaiba, Thaddeous
