Richard's Group's story

Richard A. is the leader of Buramba Tewtungye, a group in Bushenyi. He is a determined and dedicated 46-year-old man, who is married with three children aged 12 – 18 years. He also helps to care for two orphans. All of the children are in school.

Richard has a bakery business that he inherited from his father 20 years ago. His market area is in the Ishaka suburbs, with Mitooma secondary school and the University nearby. His main challenge has been the constant increase in price of the raw materials, such as flour and oil. He uses his motorcycle to supply the products to his customers and this makes his work a bit easier.

His kind of products include doughnuts, cookies, brown bread, pancakes, kebab and chapattis and luckily he has customers for all his products. Richard had a dream of opening up a store in the suburban town with a van to expand in the market, as well as have all his children educated up to the university level. He needs a loan to help with buying firewood and flour for baking purposes.

In this group: Richard, Harriet, Lakeri, Alfred, Rosette, Stephen, Evas, Gertrude, Generous, Anna, Omugisha, Asia, Lillian*
