Engari Nyekundire Group's story

Engari Nyekundire Group is located in the outskirts of Engari Town in rural Ibanda.

Lillian is a single mother who lost her husband in 2009 after her husband died in a car accident. She has six children and also takes care of her brother's two children because their father failed to provide for their basic needs.

Lillian runs a small retail shop with capital of UGX 100,000. She also deals in poultry farming which she also operates on a small scale.

She intends to use the loan money to buy some poultry that she will raise and she hopes to sell them during the festive season. She will use the rest of the money to add stock in her retail shop and the balance to pay school fees for her children.

Lillian's customers are neighbors and restaurant owners in town. Her main challenges are theft around the village and wild animals which attack them after she has invested the loan money which affects her cash flow. Despite all the challenges, Lillian is very hard-working and determined.
