A loan of $900 helped a member to buy beverages to sell in her business.


Kyenzige Sacco Group's story

Josephine is 44-years-old. She is a widow with five children aged 14, 16, 18, 20 and 23 years respectively. Because she has to pay school fees, only two of her children attend school. Josephine operates a small bar as her major source of income, in Kyenzige, on the outskirts of Kagadi.

Josephine has applied for a loan of ugx.500,000 Ugandan Shillings to buy stock for her bar business so that she increase her earnings from the business to meet her family's needs. Josephine's dream is to buy a piece of land to construct a permanent residential house for the family and also to educate all of her children in the higher institutions of learning.

Josephine's major challenge is the limited source of income she has to achieve her dream. She is grateful that Kiva, through UGAFODE, is interested in supporting her business.

The chairperson of the group who is seated has a running loan and is not taking a loan with this sub-group but signed the waiver form.

In this group: Gertrude, Sedrack, Edward, Josephine, John
