Luganda Kulya Group's story

Saydah is the Treasurer of the Luganda Kulya Group in Kasangali, a lovely village on the outskirts of Kampala. She’s been a member of this borrowing group for over six years; this is her 19th loan. Saydah is a 52-year old, hard-working single mother of three children. She also cares for her sibling’s four orphans.

Saydah raises broilers (chickens for eating) and layers (chickens for egg production) for wholesale delivery to local restaurants, grocery outlets and butchers. Her current stock is 200 head. In a typical week, she will deliver 12-15 crates of 30 eggs to her customers for 4,500 Ush per crate. She also sells several broilers each week for 4,000 Ush each. She uses broiler sales proceeds to buy more chicks and depends on the income from layers to support her family. Loan proceeds are used to purchase chicken feed in bulk quantities. Saydah prefers to buy quality chicken feed made with maize, fish, cotton and shells to improve the nutrition quality of her products and command a higher price at market.

All of Saydah’s children are in school. She wants to expand her stock to 500 chickens so she can send her children to better schools and provide them with better clothes.
