A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy ladies' clothes to sell.


Kitwe Women's Grp Group's story

Monica, a single mother in her mid-thirties, is a member of Kitwe Women’s group. Her main business is hawking used ladies' clothing around town and deep in villages. Monica claims to have done this business for the last three years, but has faced lots of challenges including dividing time between her family and business, walking for long distances under stressful weather conditions, renting a home, and daily payment of the local hawkers' tax.

Monica has a plan of growing her business to a level that would enable her to rent a shop in town where her customers would find her and at the same time looking after her children who always come back from school to a home without a mother since she has to be away working. She has now applied for a loan of UGX 200,000 through the group to boost her business.

In this group: Jariya, Allen, Beatrice, Maria Gorret, Mildred, Harriet, Monica, Joseline, Margrete, Dinah, Hadijah
