Gakuweebwamunno Lending Group's story

Christine N. is the chairperson of Gakuweebwa Munno women’s group in Lugazi. She has over 10 years business experience in selling new clothes for men, women and children at daily markets locally termed as “mubuulo.” Using her loans from Pearl Microfinance, Christine is able to boost her clothing business by buying more clothes by the bale, hence providing her customers with variety, as she comes to Kampala twice a week for shopping.

She is married with four children and stays with her children since her husband stays and works in Kenya. This means that she cares for her children and dependants, and only considers their father as the head of the family. She believes that without borrowing, waiting for funds from her husband would have made her life hard.

In this group: Christine, Joyce, Teo, Aminah, Susan , Hadijah, Lawrence, Harriet, Allen , Joyce, Rebecca, Ruth, Daniel
