Kigaga Bakyara Kweyombeka Group's story

The group was mobilized, trained and they have requested their first loan from UGAFODE Microfinace. They are 12 members doing different activities ranging from cattle rearing, goat breeding, farming and petty trade. This loan will help them to run their businesses, highlight the support to the family economy and improve their living conditions. They organize jobs selling food stuffs to strengthen the work and integration of the participants, which has brought an improvement to the relationships of the members. Until now, they have been working with their own money but hope to have the opportunity to begin to grow with the help of Kiva funds through their partner UGAFODE. Each member contributes to their home and develops a business that provides them an income. They have formed the group to do jobs, support each other and get additional income to save and boost their businesses.

One of the group members is the president, Sylvia. She has four children and supports both them and the man of the house who is attending school. She works mainly in sewing women's clothing, which will be on demand this season, and selling it in the community. She trains and enjoys the opportunities to support her associates and her family and has dreams of being successful. Sylvia's family has few resources and they live in a social bond house. With this opportunity she hopes to improve the living conditions of her family.

They are looking to fully develop their business and want to participate in community and regional activities. They hope to receive the support of UGAFODE Microfinance to participate in fairs and other similar activities. Sylvia will invest in buying materials that she will use to make clothes to sell during the festive season, increasing her sales and profit.
