Kasanga Thuyikulhaye Group's story

Goret is a forty-five-year-old married woman with eight children living in Kasese, Uganda. For ten years now, she has been operating a retail shop. She started this business to supplement her farming activities. As the good mother that she is, she wants to educate her children so that they have degrees as a minimum qualification, even though she never had a chance to further her education herself due to the low level of her parents' income. Price fluctuation and high license fees affect her business plan. Her dream is to have a wholesale shop. She is a member of the above mentioned group where each one guarantees the other in accessing a loan. Goret intends to use the loan to pay for her children's school fees.

In this group: Ernest, Goret, Solomon, Remegio, Janet, Remis, Kayonga, Erika
