Dassan's Group's story

M. Dassan is the leader of a lending group in Kirinya, Bweyogerere. He is a married man with four children as he cares for two dependants under one roof.


He buys plots of land and houses and rents to people at a fee. He is well known and gets along with them and wins more customers. He also sells construction sand for housing and has a brick laying business. He employs two men. He needs a loan to buy another piece of land where he can get more sand for sale and for laying more bricks. This will help him get more money for his children’s education and for their well being.
