A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy utencils for the restaurant.

Twesiga Mukama Group's story

In the previous loan, one member of the group, Alex, was able to buy food items for her food stall. She also paid school fees for her children, who have now got holidays. She re-sold the food items and gained some profit. She is now getting 800,000ugx to buy coffee from the village at a cheaper price. She brings it to town to sell at a higher price to supplement her already constrained income. She is confident that with the partnership of Ugafode, her goals will soon be achieved.

Now Rose, Alex's neighbor at the business premise, has been attracted to the group because of the change that occurred to Alex's business, and family.

Having seen Alex's business expand, and the influx of customers because of the better services she now offers, Rose was convinced the group had done a great change for Alex, and Rose decided to join. She will use the 300,000 ugx to buy better utencils for her restaurant so she can attract more customers.

Her major challenge has been limited capital. Rose is shrewd and honest. She lives in a poorly structured house and hopes, that if lenders finance her, she could build a better house in the future.

In this group: Alex, Godfrey, Sylivia, Ben, Fatuma, Rose, Ephraim, Faridah, Stephen, Godfrey , Aisha, Sarah, Peace, Rose, Roeabinah, Immaculate
