Ben's Group's story

M. Ben is the leader of his group in Lugazi. He is a married man with 8 children aged between 23 – 9 years all in school with the first still at the University as he takes care of his other siblings. Ben is a fisherman in Kiyindi for 9 years selling all his catch for an income. At first, before this business, he was a salary earner employed by a fishing company and the little capital he had enabled him buy a boat and fishing net in addition to the loans. Now he has more than doubled his earnings and he is proud of his achievements since he employs more than 7 people. He wants to become the supplier of boat engines because they earn more as well as continue educating his children for a decent future. He needs a loan to help recapitalize his business plus paying school fees for his children.
