A loan of $3,900 helped a member to buy more goods for her shop.


Sikyoomu Women's Group's story

Harriet N. is the chairperson of the Sikyoomu women’s group in Katosi, Lugazi. She is 38 years old and divorced. She lives with her three children in Katosi. Harriet has a retail shop that she has owned for 10 years. When she restocks her shop, she buys from the wholesale shops in Katosi so she does not have to incur more transportation costs. However, when it’s time to pay school fees, she is short on money to restock her business. She is the only bread winner at home, so she is grateful for the loans that allow her to restock her shop to a state where she can make enough profit to provide for herself and her children as well as to repay her loans on time.

She will share this loan with her group members.

In this group: Harriet, Leotina, Noel, Prossy, Margaret, Jesper, Resty, Kevin, Tonny, Cissy
