Mwavu Teyebaka Group's story

Polline O., age 45, is the leader of the Mwavu Teyebaka women’s group on Lumumba Avenue in Kampala. She is married with six children and cares for three orphans. She has a restaurant called Kalo Eating Place in the same location where her group meets, and she has a good clientele. Come lunch time, the place is filled with people from offices and all over town who want to have something traditional to fill their stomachs.

Polline has been taking loans to help her to maintain her restaurant each day, such as buying food ,sauce, plates, cups, and so much more. To date, she is so happy about it. She now needs another loan to help to buy more food from the villages where the prices are cheaper.
