Gertrude's Group's story

Gertrude N. is the leader of her group and a business lady with a retail shop as her business. She is a married lady with 5 children and she cares for one cousin. The loans have been so helpful especially now that her husband has two wives and his attention towards his children and family is all divided.

Gertrude uses her loans to buy more products for the shop like sugar, cooking oil, flour, etc., and as a result the profits and savings help to run her home. She is also a farmer on a small scale and this food enables her to save the money she would have used on buying food to pay school fees and clothe her children. She needs another loan for her shop, to expand it.

In this group: Gertrude, Dezilanta, Felista, Specioza, Yostasi, Beatrice, Rafairi, Sarah, Esther, Betty, Charles, Grace, Abbas, Florence
