Trust Development Group, Mukono's story

B. Vincent (pictured inset top left as well as in the group photo) is the leader of his lending group in Mukono, a group that meets in a church. He is 33 years old and married with four children, the eldest of whom is eight years old. He also takes care of four siblings.

Vincent is from Terere village. For the past six years, he has worked as a boda-boda (bicycle taxi) driver and a builder. His main business challenge is the scarcity of clients for both businesses, but despite this, he is able to make 70,000 UGX profits every week. He works very hard to ensure that he earns enough to pay school fees for his children so that they can have a better future. Vincent is requesting a loan to buy more equipment for his building business so that he can provide better services. He hopes to buy, among other things, a wheelbarrow and a ladder.

In this group: Vincent , Edward, George, Mary, Remigious, Charles, Charles, Bonifance, Paul, Patrick, Klizesto, Amos
