Nabweru Development Group's story

Ruth is 35 years old, a resident of Nabweru, and a member of Nabweru Development Group. She is married and has four children, who all attend school. Despite the fact that she earns little income, Ruth also takes care of her brother’s children, because he passed away two years back. Ruth started up a small retail shop next to her home, when her husband had lost his job after a long period of illness. Ruth has been able to support her family without the help of her husband, providing all the necessary needs. She provides good customer care and this has led to the growth of her business. Ruth needs a loan for completion of her water tank. Because there is scarcity of clean water in her home area, without a water tank her children have been required to walk long distances in search of clean water, something that is risky and not healthy at their tender ages. This was necessary, because Ruth, the mother, has to keep at her business and do all the housework. She hopes with the completion of the tank, her worries over luck of finding water, and the suffering borne by the children in search for water over long distances, will be over. Ruth is hard-working, honest and sociable. Ruth is the one pictured in a black ring.
