A loan of $2,000 helped a member buying windows and doors for her house.


Flavia's Group's story

N. Flavia, a very methodical, hard-working lady, operates a business buying fresh animal blood, shells and bones from which she makes chicken feed. She employs people to go to slaughter houses “lufula” to collect the fresh blood in cans; she then boils all of her ingredients from Ugachick in Gayaza as an independent. Once done, she sells to Ugachick itself although the payments take two weeks to come through; this is one reason she also sells to other firms that pay instant cash for her to remain in business.

Flavia is grateful for her loans because she has been able to pay school fees for her four children singlehandedly after the death of her husband, and now they are out of school and operating their own businesses. She currently cares for three orphans attending school, all the children of her late sister but abandoned by their father upon his remarriage.

Thanks to previous loans received, Flavia was able to build her own house, but she is now requesting another loan to buy windows and doors for her house to replace the polythene paper coverings; the balance of the loan will be used to reinvest in her business.
