Kakoba Okwegata Gemanyi Group's story

Hadija is a resident of Kakoba division in Mbarara municipality. She is 36 years old. She dropped out of school and got married at the age of 18. At the age of 25 with three children, she divorced because her husband was mistreating her. She started up the small business of selling secondhand clothes in order to take care of her children. This business has grown and helped her to sustain her family as well as her extended family. She has been able to pay tuition for her young sisters. Her previous loan of UGX 800,000 from Ugafode has helped her to prosper and this has motivated her to mobilize other women to form a development group called Kakoba Okwegata group. This group is requesting for a total loan of UGX 6,300,000 to help them buy more stock for their businesses. Three of the group members did not get loans in this cycle because they got loans earlier than the rest.

In this group: Kadimu, Hadija, Sauda, Allen, Nizafa, Ruth, Fatuma, Abia, Beatrice, Christine, Prossy, Amina, Apophia
