Abamwi Women's Group's story
Mathew, whose hand is raised in the group picture, is a 38-year-old married man living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He sells beans, rice, cassava flour and fish to people around town. In addition to that, he generates income from cocoa harvests, which has helped him to improve his household and provide school fees for his children. Despite his progress, price fluctuations and weather changes affect his business a lot. He is a member of Abamwi Women's Group whereby each member guarantees the others to get a loan. Mathew is requesting a loan to buy beans, rice, cassava flour and fish to sell.
