Kiswahili Cell A-Night Group's story

Night A. is a hardworking and determined businesswoman. She rents a stall on Mbaguta Street, Mbarara, at the rate of 150,000 UGX per month, in which she sells second hand clothes and offers tailoring services. From her savings as a poultry keeper, Night raised the capital to set up this business that now earns her an approximate weekly profit of 120,000 UGX.

She is using the loan funds to purchase a variety of fabrics to meet the demands of her clients. Besides her ten years' experience in this business, Night attracts her customers by being social and friendly to them. She hopes to own a unisex boutique stocked with the latest designer outfits.

Married to a businessman, and a mother of three, 40-year-old Night is also a loving guardian to her late sister’s daughter. Her children and niece attend the same primary school in Mbarara. This is her third loan and she hopes that it will help her business grow, thereby increasing the profit margins. If that happens, she will be in a position to help her husband in the construction of their residence, and with school fees for the children.
