Rashida's Group's story

K. Rashida is the chairperson of the Bugembe Katwe group in Jinja. She is a business woman who sells new clothes, mostly ladies’ and girls’ wear. Recently she has added children's clothing. This is her eighteenth loan with the group. She has benefited by being able to construct rental houses as well as to pay school fees for her children, one of whom is at the University. She buys her clothes from Kampala twice a week and always has a large stock of new clothes. Rashida needs a new loan to be able to buy more clothes for sale. (The credit officer for the group, Richard, is also in the photo.)
