Annet Kaweesi`s Group's story

Annet is the leader of this group of five. She lost two of the original members and was joined by other two whose group disintegrated. She is 23 years of age and married with four children, aged 10, 7, 5, and 2. Three are in school. She had never accessed credit until she joined MCDT. The community she lives in is urban within a low-lying slum area.

She buys charcoal from trucks that travel to her area and works for 6 days in a week. Her busiest times are mid-days and evenings. She rents the place where she operates her business and has been in business for 4 years. There is a ready market for her business.

Her main challenge is that she works in an open space and sometimes during the rainy season the area floods and the fast-running water takes away her stock. In the hot season she has to bear the brunt of the sun.

Her benefits include being able to send her children to school and contributing to household expenditures. She has over the years acquired a refrigerator, a calf and goat.

She plans to acquire a plot of land to build a house.

In this group: Annet,, Sarah, Jessica, Rose, Nalubuulwa
