A loan of $1,550 helped a member to buy used clothing to sell.

Ibanda Twimukye Group's story

Doreen deals in second hand shoes. She is a widow who lost her husband in 2009 and lives with her six children who are all in school. She has applied for a loan of 500,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX). She wants to use the money to buy more stock of second hand clothes to add to her business such that she can beat the competition and get more customers and use the rest of the money to pay school fees for her children. Doreen is a very hard working and honest woman who struggles singlehandedly to provide a good education for her children such that they can be better in future.
Her major challenges are inadequate capital to expand her business and high operational costs like rent which affect her cashflow.
