A loan of $1,475 helped a member to purchase more goats to resell.

Nyakabungo Bakyara Tukore Group's story

He is a product of an environment where people lay great store on the values of diligence. In Ntungamo, where he plies his animal sales business of principally goat herding and sales from it, people pull out all the stops and explore all avenues to succeed or to alleviate themselves of their narrow circumstances. Diligence here is like a legacy handed down. Most youth who hail from Ntungamo are well-known sticklers for unwavering hard work.

The referenced person above goes by the name of Benon, a 44-year-old father of six who, on the face of it, radiates nothing but warmth, humor and confidence. It's now 13 years in this enterprise.

By and large, his business successes outweigh his shortcomings but making the best out of bad bargains is a philosophy he was taught and still reckons up to now.

His auxiliary business is farming. Farming was literally his maiden business.

Weekly, this business's gross sales revenue is to the sum of Uganda shillings 100,000.

For Benon, this is his second loan cycle. Some other members in his group are in their fourth cycle and some on their first cycle. The repayment record for the group has been up to the mark. Benon intends to use this Kiva loan to purchase more goats to resell.
