Bubare Tukore Hamwe Group's story

Bubaare Tukore Hamwe group is located on the outskirts of Ibanda Town. The group is composed mainly of women whose major activity is agriculture. They fall into different categories including divorcees, widows, single mothers and a few who are married.
Debrah is a widow with six children and is a member of Bubaare Tukore Hamwe. She specializes in growing food crops and raising goats and chickens. She also runs a side business of a small retail shop with capital of UGX 100,000. It’s through these activities that Debrah has been able to feed her children, provide for their basic needs and send them to good schools.
She has applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 through the group to buy goats and to complete a shelter for the goats. Her main customers are neighbors and passersby. The main challenge she faces are thieves who steal her goats overnight since she has no adequate shelter to keep them at night. This affects her business and sometimes she and the children have to spend nights outside guarding the goats. At times they fall sick due to cold nights and are unable to work or go to school. Despite all the challenges, Debrah is still a determined woman looking forward to change her future and that of her children by giving them a good education.

In this group: Loyce, Mary, Dinavence, Gorrette, Doreck, Sarah, Debrah, Dinavence, Gordon, Dafrose, Mary Lesta, Dianah
