A loan of $4,375 helped a member to buy a piece of land for farming.

Francis' Group's story

Tinkagirize Francis, the leader of his lending group in Bushenyi, is a 46-year-old married father of six children, all in secondary and primary schools. Francis, a hard-working and friendly man, has been operating both a bee-keeping and a farming business for 10 years. Although he likes what he does, he is affected by the expensive materials used in bee-keeping as well as the limited market for the honey made from it. He is now requesting a loan to help buy a piece of land that he will use to increase his farming output. His goal is to spread his business ideas to other parts of the district since he has been helped by the National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS). He also hopes to educate his children to the university level.

In this group: Francis, Elly, Happy, Peter, David, Juma, Mary, Dinarensi, Medias, Pasiano, Elhema, Sam, Patrick, Costance, Nathan, Lauben, Munir, Alice
