A loan of $2,250 helped a member to purchase bicycle spare parts and open up a shop.


Bufunda Garage, Ibanda Group's story

M. Muzamira, aged 38 years, has a family of three and has been operating a bicycle repair shop for two years in Nyabuhikye, Ibanda. Through doing this he is able to make 160,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis which he uses to meet his family’s daily requirements including buying food for the family and paying tuition fees.

For a long time, Muzamira’s motive has always been to set up a spare-parts shop as there is a ready market available. This would help him to better progress his mechanic’s job more fairly with the extra expense of purchasing machines from other people but the ability to earn more profit.

Therefore, with this loan, Muzamira hopes to buy more spares for repairing bicycles.
