A loan of $1,800 helped a member to purchase more art crafts for his business.


Bwera Twekundire Group, Ibanda's story

B. Nicholas, 38 years old, is the married father of three children. All his children are in school and he is also taking care of two orphans.

Nicholas runs a crafts shop business in Rwamunyari, Ibanda district. He has been plying his business for the last seven years and it is with these profits that he has managed to shoulder his family responsibilities.

Nicholas’s major drawback over the years has been clients who take most of his items on credit. In a way this has retarded his progress. However, his strong reserves of hard work have helped him overcome this and, as it is now, he is making a modest 60,000 shillings a month.

The future of Nicholas’s business will improve, he says, if he can get this loan. He plans on buying more indigenous and foreign art crafts for his shop.
