A loan of $1,975 helped a member to buy electrical appliances and scrap metal to sell.


Teddy's Group's story

Prossy is a young and determined member of the group, founded in the outskirts of the city. Prossy buys scrap metal and sells it to recyclers, as well as a few electric appliances. This is a business she began immediately after she dropped out of school due to lack of tuition funds, because her father had many other children and gave priority to the boys. She got married at a tender age, but she wanted to be actively involved in business, so with a few resources from her husband, she started selling scrap and some electrical appliances. She will use the proceeds of her loan to buy electrical appliances. She has challenges, such as the theft of metals around the village, coupled with buying fake metals which aren’t easily sold. Despite all the challenges she goes through, she cannot leave the business because she has to take care of her young children, as her husband's meager resources are inadequate. She is a determined and resilient woman.

In this group: Teddy, Resty, Grace, Mariam, Racheal, Teddy, Christine, Prossy, Ruth, Rehema, Rebecca, Hadijja, Shamim
