Nsubuga's Group's story

Fred, Bena, Twaha and Zabina are members of the Tweweeyo Women’s Group, which is located in the Lweru trading center. They have applied for a group loan which will allow all of them to expand their businesses.

Fred sells yellow bananas to retailers and traders, and would like to buy more produce from farmers to sell to his clients. Bena sells local brews known as waragi and malwa, and would like to buy more sorghum and pots to make his work easier. Twaha deals in scrap, which he buys from the surrounding villages and sells to steel plants. He will use his loan to buy more materials to sell. Zabina has a six-year-old restaurant in Lweru, and needs a loan to buy more plates, spoons, saucepans and charcoal for cooking food.
