Scholastica Naggita ‘S Group's story

Scholastica is the leader of a four member group. She is 58 years old and married with six children. None of her children, who are between the ages of 28 and 38, go to school. She also takes care of additional family members. She resides in a three-roomed house that she owns in which five people stay. They have electricity and piped water at home and the family gets three meals a day. She works in a semi-urban area in Kampala city centre.

Scholastica sells domestic products in Kikuubo, one of busiest places in Kampala. She works six days a week and rents her business premises for 100,000 per month. She sells to an average of ten customers a day and to all categories of people. She sells retail and wholesale and has been in this business for the last three years. Her monthly expenses include rent and school fees. She is faced with high commodity prices, which chase away some of her long time customers.

Scholastica has been in MCDT for six years and is servicing her fifteenth loan, working all along with the same groupmates. She wants to use this loan to acquire a bigger place for her business and also aspires to own a wholesale shop.

In this group: Scholastica, Nulu, Hamida, Oliver
