A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy more stock for his store.


Agahikaine Karungyi Parish, Kyenjojo Group's story

N. Wilberforce is a 42-year-old married father of eight boisterous schoolchildren. To shoulder his responsibility of providing for them, he has, over the course of the last four years, been operating a retail shop in Kawanijju in Kyenjojo. His business has not been without setbacks since he began.

Wilberforce has had to bear a myriad of challenges, such as the lack of steady income. In a way, however, his business has remained active. This he principally attributes to the good working chord he has struck with his clientele.

In a week, Wilberforce says he makes more than 50,000 Ugandan shillings, a figure he admits will not substantively make his business see the light of day in the near future. He is therefore seeking a loan to lend countenance to his business. With this loan, he says he will be able to buy more garments and other forms of merchandise for his shop.

Wilberforce belongs to a group of nineteen members who support one another in paying back the loan.

In this group: Wilberforce, Samuel, Patrick, Herbert, Joseph, David, Frank, John, Abel, Jenina, Kesi, Charles, Charles, Stella, Robert, Nelson, Ambrose, Ngorogoza*, Warren*
