Deborah Ndagire `s Group's story

N. Deborah leads a group of four women. She has been a member of MCDT since 2002 and has received 10 previous loans. For the past three years, Deborah has owned and operated a profitable used-clothing business. Three times a month, she goes out early in the morning to the local market, a large one in Kampala town, to buy used women’s clothing. She then resells blouses, skirts and other articles at a stand outside the market near her home in Ndeeba, a suburb within the city limits of Kampala. She works six days a week, from 10 a.m. until evening, and reports that she has about 10-15 customers each day. Evenings are her busiest time. She decided to sell clothing because it's an easy way to make a living. Her goal is to continue in this business, but her primary challenge is buying enough clothing to resell. With a new loan, she will be able to buy more clothes and see her business grow.

Deborah is a 42-year-old married mother of five children, ranging in age from 12 to 22. All of her children are in school; the eldest is a student at Makerere Univeristy.

In this group: Deborah, Florence, Jane, Rehema
