Abekundire Women's Group's story

Abekundire Women's Group is a group of men and women, living within Ibanda town council, mainly traders, farmers and several other occupations.

Charity, now 45 years old, is a widow member of the group who operates a small retail shop and raises poultry for supplementary income. She has responsibility for taking care of six children, whom her late husband left behind. Despite being a single mother, Charity has been able to cope with life and can now ably look after her family with ease.

Charity's main challenge is that she wants to construct a permanent poultry house in order to protect her birds from theft and bad weather. She has, therefore, applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 to assist her in buying construction materials.

In this group: Charity, Betty, Willington, Stephen, Vicent, Robert, Betty, Flora, Sharon
