Max's Group's story

M. Max is a kind and friendly 40-year-old lady who is married with six children aged 22 – 11 years. She also helps to care for two orphaned relatives and two abandoned children. Of her children, one is at the university while the rest are in secondary schools. She works so hard to ensure that all her children reach university level and get good jobs to support themselves.

For ten years, Max has had a business dealing in agricultural products, buying and selling coffee and cotton from Mirarikye. The coffee and cotton are sold to the coffee factories and ginneries respectively, hence enabling her to make monthly profits of UGX 300,000. Her main challenge is that during the rainy season, the roads become impassable, hence increasing the cost of transportation of the produce.

Max employs coffee and cotton collectors and provides them with bicycles, hence enabling them to make enough purchases. She has a dream of owning a pick-up truck that will help to collect the produce from the furthest of villages and transport it to the factories on time. Her loan will be used to buy coffee for resale and to buy a bicycle to help in the business. In most cases, her loan money helps to replace business capital that is taken out for school fees.
