Florence's Nakyeyune Group's story

Florence is the leader of this five member group. She is 42 years old and married with four daughters, who are between the ages of 24 and 15. All her children go to school. She owns a five-room house where she stays with six people. Florence doesn't take care of any additional family members. There is no electricity or piped water at her home but the family gets three meals a day.

Florence resides in and works in a semi-urban area on the outskirts of Kampala. She sells chicken and rents a stall at Kalerwe in the city suburbs. She sells to an average of 30 people a day and works seven days a week. Florence's major monthly expenses include rent for the business premises, school fees, and medication. She uses a bicycle to commute to and from work. She has been in this business for six years. Her main challenges are the rainy season, which disturbs her a lot, and seasonality.

Florence has been with MCDT for over six years and this is her twelfth loan, working all along with the same groupmates. She wants to use this loan to increase stock in her business. Florence also aspired to build rental rooms in the available space near her house.
