Ntara Abamwe Group's story

Ntara Abamwe group is located in the outskirts of Ntara Trading Centre. The group is comprised of men whose major activity is small scale trade. Kenneth is a single father of six school-going children. He lost his wife in a car accident 2 years back. In addition he looks after two nephews who are orphans. Kenneth is mainly a small scale trader who owns a small retail shop with capital of about UGX 100,000. He supplements his retail shop with his piggery project which he resorted to after losing his wife in 2010, so that he could meet the needs of his children and take them to school, which he does single-handedly. He will use the loan to buy more pigs to expand his project, to buy more stock to expand his retail shop business and use some money to pay school fees. The main challenge is theft around the village and wild animals which eat his pigs after he has invested his money and loan money in them, which affects his working capital. Sometimes he and his children fall sick which reduces labour to work on his businesses. Despite all the challenges, Kenneth is a very hardworking and determined man who is looking forward to changing the future of his children by giving them a good education.

In this group: Asaph, Johnmary, Yosam, Kenneth, Esau, Patakeho, Vincent, Patrick, Agnes, Nafutari, Moses
