Gladys Nagadya’S Group's story

Gladys is a leader of 5 members of a group. She is 21 and married with 3 children aged between 2 and 7 years. Two of her children go to school. Gladys takes care of her parents and two orphans. She owns a three-room house where she is staying with five people. They have electricity but no piped water at home. The family gets two meals a day and rarely take tea.

Gladys works in a semi-urban area which is in the outskirts of Kampala, dealing in second-hand clothes. She uses public transport to and from work. Gladys buys theses clothes from Owino market, one of the busiest markets in Kampala city. She sells to an average of 20 customers a day and to all categories of people, mainly women. Gladys has been in this business for five years, working six days a week.

She is faced with a challenge of high transport costs from home to work, and the rainy season, which makes movement impossible because she lives in a place that floods. She has been with MCDT for four years, working all this time with the same group-mates. She wants to use this very loan to buy more bales of clothes. Gladys aspires to sell new clothes in the future.
