A loan of $4,975 helped a member to purchase more goods like beans and maize to sell.

Ndorogi 1 Rukundo, Ibanda Group's story

On the face of it, T. Spedita seems a hard-grinding business lady. The 35-year-old married mother of five school-going children sweats her guts out selling produce such as peas, beans, millet and maize flour in the small rural town of Kakunama, Ibanda district. She has been doing this for the last ten years.

Spedita is able to make close to 200,000 Ugandan shillings monthly. This is quite modest by any standards and, as such, she requires a loan that will help her buy more food supplies for her business.

Spedita belongs to a group of twenty-two members and they are on their 18th loan. They insure each other in paying back the loan.

In this group: Spedita, Vangi, Stavias, Stephen, Max, Getrida, Jerosome, Innocent, Christine, Josephine, Clever, Monica, Modest, Audria, Deogratious, Harriet, Mary, Rogers, Angelica, Fred*, Irene, Bonny
