A loan of $4,600 helped a member to buy fresh fish.

Akutwala Ekiko Group's story

Florence is a wholesale fish seller. She travels to Bbaale, a landing port for fishermen, and buys large amounts of fresh fish. She then packs them into her fish truck and transports them to Bwaise, where she sells to her customers at wholesale prices. When Florence is busy with other things her brother runs her business. Florence has 8 children. Three of them are still in school and she is able to pay all of their school fees from the profits from her fish business. Florence is married to a farmer. The farm that her husband works is so large that he is able to employ some people from the community. Florence would like to buy an additional transport vehicle some day because her customer base is now exceeding the amount that she can supply with her currently vehicle. Now Florence is requesting a loan of 6 million USH to buy fresh fish from Bbaale.
