Daisy - Income Generating Group

Daisy, 36 yrs, spends many afternoons a week in Shanti’s thatched hut, with her sewing machine whirring and her feet pumping; her dedication to the group evident.

She is married and the income she earns from Shanti is supplemented by her husband’s job working in road construction for the district. They have five children, three boys and two girls, spanning from 9 to 19 years old. Her younger children are still in school, while the eldest has finished and is now a shopkeeper.
Daisy was able to stay in school until the end of Primary 6, which has equipped her with many basic skills that she is putting to good use. To that end, as an enterprising entrepreneur, Daisy operates a small business of making and selling traditional Ugandan spirits.
GOALS: She would like to leverage some of this business acumen to open a shop to sell her own clothes and bags.
