Nalubega Eseza`s Group's story

Eseza N. is the leader of a group of four women. She is 35, married and has three children aged 18, 17, and 15, all of whom are in school. She lives in a semi-urban slum in the outskirts of Kampala that is prone to flooding during the rainy season.

Eseza operates a salon in her town of Bwaise where she has rented space for four years. Eseza rides a matatu (shared van) into Kampala in order to get products for her business. She is open five days a week and primarily sells hair weaves; however, she especially enjoys doing braiding for her female customers.

Eseza is seeking this loan to increase the range of products she offers, specifically hair extensions. She has worked with MCDT for three years and has successfully paid back seven loans. She first decided to work with MCDT because she wanted to grow her business and be able to pay for her children's education. Since her first loan, she has been able to pay school fees and buy food for her family. Eseza hopes to build a house of her own one day, and to teach her children how to invest and save.
