A loan of $1,450 helped a member to buy more bales of clothing to sell.


Safina's Group's story

N. Safina is the chairperson of Kajekaire group in Jinja. This is the first loan the group is getting from Pearl Microfinance and they decided to do so because they wanted to improve their livelihood through recapitalizing their businesses. Safina has a business selling new clothes for young girls and children. She moves around the trading centers in her village and to a few nearby daily markets. This is because she does not have enough stock to cater to the bigger market yet; there is a lot of taxation once you go to many markets. She has two children and she would like to see them grow into responsible citizens by educating them. Safina needs a loan to buy more clothes from Iganga.

In this group: Safina, Lydia, Lillian, Martin, Amisi, Oliver, Fatuma, Zamu, Lookman, Farida, Suzan
