A loan of $1,000 helped a member buying fertilizers and mulches.

Rwemiyaga Tungukye, Ntungamo Group's story

Very hard working B. James has been operating a produce sales business from Rwemiyaga, Ntungamo for a period of eight years. With nostalgia, this happily married father of two school-going children recalls how his business basked in high profit returns at its onset. Times have changed, however, as the business now earns only 200,000 Ugandan shillings in sharp contrast to the previous earnings.

People in western Uganda, despite laboring in such tough circumstances, always find a way of educating their children. James is no exception. He now looks forward to the prospect of enhancing his business by buying fertilizer and mulches for his plantation. He has other income-generating activities like coffee sales, firewood sales and timber. With this loan, he will increase his income and become better able to support his family.

In this group: James, Tofiri, Eliab, Vincent, Law, Enock, Stephen, Provia, Dez, Robert, Medard, Ronald, John, Tanario, Anah, Desun, Gordon*
