Kihayura Twekambe Group's story

Story given by Yoweri, standing on the extreme left, with a bag.

Yoweri is a married man, age 45, who has four children. All of them are school going. He is a produce dealer (maize and beans). He does both the growing and selling. He started this in 2007, in order to increase the family income so that he can educate the children.

Yoweri wants a loan of 500,000 UGX to add produce to the business, since the season is on and demand is high. His major customers are residents of his area and its outskirts, where he operates the business. He hopes that, if given this loan, he will be able to expand the business and use the profits to improve the living standard of the family. He wants to build a permanent, residential house and educate the children.

His major challenge is limited capital, plus transporting the produce from the village to the market. He would like the financial services to be provided to his group, whenever there is need for them.
