Mary Kagunda

Mary is a single mother of one, who lost both parents in the years 2005 and 2007 consequently. She was the third of four girls. The older two sisters were married before their parents’ deaths. Mary was left to care for her youngest sister. Though she had finished high school, she was not employed. When she came to us, Mary had a stock of clothes in a plastic bag where she walked around selling them in the neighborhood.

When she received her first loan, she bought and kept chickens. She was able to sell two trays of eggs every week. She said that her life changed and they were able to put food on the table without strain. Mary continued saving money from the eggs until she had enough to buy a sheep. The sheep she purchased was pregnant and she gave birth to a female sheep. Mary still has chickens and sheep but with the loan she received after the business course, she plans to start selling cosmetic products. She hopes to grow her business to a point where she can employ not only her sister but her neighbors as well.
