A loan of $4,075 helped a member the purchase of more jerrycans of crude alcohol to resell.


Bugongi United Savings And Credit Group B-Kihihi's story

30 year old T. Peter has been selling crude liquor for the last 5 years as a means of earning his livelihood. It goes without saying that this beverage is in high favour with many rank and file folks around his neighborhood. For this reason, Peter has been able to make ends meet though not as effectively as he would want. The reason for this he says is because unlike other beverages like beers which are taken by middle and high income earners, crude alcohol is mostly consumed by low income earners with paltry cash.

This business, Peter reveals, was begun with savings from his produce sales business, which is still a business for him, though he has less time for it at the present time. When he is not there to see the day to day running of business, his wife with whom he has 5 kids is always there to run it. Monthly, this business generates him 200,000 shillings. With this loan, Peter says he is going to buy more jerrycans of crude alcohol to resell. Peter belongs to Bugongi United Savings and Credit group-Kihihi.
