Kyenzige Sacco2 Group's story

Gertrida is married with six children who are all going to school. She operates a retail shop and a bar. On top of this, Gertrida is also practising farming on a small scale so that she can supplement her income. It's from these businesses that she has been able to educate her children and look after the family. She previously borrowed 300,000 shillings from UGAFODE three months ago which helped to increase capital in the business.

Gertrida now wants a loan of 600,000 shillings for her retail business. Her dream is to see her children go to school and also to support her husband in putting up a permanent house for the family. Her challenge is limited capital in the business plus high transport costs. She is optimistic that with UGAFODE through the group, her life and her family status will gradually change.
