Margaret's Group's story

Margaret N. is the leader of the Bbogo loan group in Lugazi. She is a very hard working lady and manages her businesses well. She sells a small silvery fish known as ‘mukene’ that she buys from the fishermen either late at night or very early in the morning depending on the fishing schedule and season. She then sells these fish to people at the landing site, in the village, and others in Lugazi. In addition to this business, she makes chapattis for customers for breakfast. Her sales depend on the weather, on some days she can use up to 1.5 packets of flour. Lastly, she has a small scale farm. Margaret is requesting a loan to buy more fish to sell and a carton of flour.
