Nyakyanika 11 Women Group's story

Damas is 26 years old and married with four children living in Masindi, Uganda. He is a member of Nyakyanika Group where each member guarantees the other in accessing a loan. His family goal is to start up a small business for his wife to supplement the family income. He is a fishmonger and he has been in the business for four years. He started the business with 100,000 shillings but now it has grown to 1,500,000 as his working capital. His challenge is price fluctuation and the difficulty of transporting the fish due to poor feeder roads. Damas needs the loan to buy fish to sell.
