Kasasa Twegate Group's story

Isiah is a 35-year-old married man with four children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He is a member of a village bank group where members guarantee one another to get a loan. His main business is buying and selling produce like maize, beans and groundnuts and he has been in business for three years. He started this business because small scale farmers could not afford to sell in urban places due to high cost and yet there was a ready market offering better prices. He gets additional income from goat rearing. He is faced with a problem of transporting his produce to the market due to high transport costs and hopes to buy his own means of transport. Isiah is requesting a loan to produce maize and beans to sell.
