Tusuubira Group A's story

Prossy is a 38-year-old married mother of five children, ages 6 - 16, and the foster mother of her orphaned niece. She has owned and operated a retail grocery shop for 8 years. Before she became a member of this borrowing group 6 years ago, Prossy's shop did not have enough goods to sell, due to insufficient capital, which restricted the income that she needed to provide for her family.

Now, with loans, she is able to buy more stock, which improves her revenue. With the increased income from her shop and her savings, Prossy and her husband hope to buy another plot of land and build rental homes as an additional source of family income.

In this group: Prossy, Teo, Zaituni, Sarah, Yayeli, Tezirah, Annet, Zaituni, Jalia, Lawrence, Betty, Jamilla, Alice
