Kanyamutwe Women's Grp Group's story

Ntura is a member of Kanyamutwe Womens’ Group of Kebisoni– Rukungiri District. He comes from a Village in Kakinga Parish - Kebisoni Sub - county. He has been a client of UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) for five years now.

The money he has been getting from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) helped him to start a small retail business which he has managed to grow into a big shop. He has also ventured in the coffee trade and a piggery business. When KIVA partnered with UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI), he learned about it and became educated about such funds and was interested because he would be partnering with so many lenders.

He secured a loan of ugx.1,000,000 Uganda Shillings through the group, which he expects to help him improve and expand his businesses by buying several daily house hold use items needed by his customers. He is a committed client, hard-working, and married with nine children.

He is confident he will be able to educate all his children, which he wouldn't have done without the financial boost from Ugafode.The extra two people are group members who have signed the waiver but are not taking the loan this cycle.

In this group: Robert, Kellen, Hope, Dezra, Mary, Florence, Meble, Junior, Abert, Midius, Enid, Ntura
