Benedicto's Group's story

Benedicto M. is a 62-year-old, hardworking man. He is married with 11 children, three of whom are still in school as he also takes care of three grandchildren and one orphan. Benedicto has had multiple businesses -- poultry, bricklaying and the sale of produce -- in Kitega for 29 years. His major business challenges are the changes in prices depending on the season. He is able to make about 200,000 Ugandan shillings in profits a week and that helps him in taking care of his family and saving for future developments. His dream is to spread his business to other areas apart from his village as well as to build rental houses for monthly earnings.

Benedicto needs a loan to help buy more feed for his chicken as well as more produce for resale, since loans have boosted his businesses.
