Kigando Bakyara Twetungure Group's story

Ruth, who is 33 years old, is a hardworking married woman with three children, two of whom are students. They live in Kamwenge, Uganda. She operates a boutique where she sells second-hand shoes as her main source of income.

She has been in this business for the past five years but has not been making enough capital to look after her family, so she decided to supplement it with farming of crops like maize, beans, groundnuts and others. Even with this other business, it has not been possible to make ends meet, since she faces a challenge of high prices for shoes where high taxes are levied.

She has hopes of expanding her business and requests a loan to buy more second-hand shoes to sell, so as to raise income for paying school fees for the children as it is her wish to educate all of them.

Ruth is a trusted member of Kigando Bakyara Twetungure Group, where they entrusted her with the responsibility of being the treasurer, meaning via the money. She is faithful and hopes that, when a loan is given to her, it will be repaid to zero.
