Kasenyi United Group's story
Kabira, age 48, requests a loan of 1,500,000 UGX from Kasenyi United Group. Widowed with 4 children, none of whom are at school, she engages in the business of locally brewing beer (waragi). She works every day throughout the week. She is also a fish monger who buys fish from fishermen and sells to the people neighboring the lake, as well as others. She started the business in 2002. It is located in Kasenyi, a landing site in Kasese western Uganda. She was troubled with lack of capital and her search for sources of finance to expand her business landed her in a group funded by Ugafode and she has never looked back since. She will use the money to buy more locally brewed beers for selling. Her clients are people around the lake shores of Kasenyi, especially the fish mongers. She hopes to be a prosperous business lady in the future. She faces the challenges of price fluctuations, and sometimes some people take on credit and fail to pay. She is an honest and hardworking person. In the above photo, Kabira is the lady in the front row with a black top.
