Twekembe Development Group's story

It is rare in Uganda for one to doubt a 48-year-old midwife with 17 years of experience. Mayi K., the chairperson of the Twekembe Development Group, can be best described as such. She is married with 4 children and provides for 6 of her relatives. She has a maternity home in Bulenga and she has been our client for 8 years. Her dream for the future is to have her own premises for the maternity home, which is currently in rented space. She believes her dream can only come true by having a loan together with her group. Mayi is result-oriented and hardworking.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Mayi, Hadija, Rebecca, Betty, Robinah, Shalon, Nathan, Betty, Betty, Sarah, Rosette, Diana
