Koranorya Tweyombekye Group's story

Dickson is a resident of Koranorya, a suburb of Mbarara Municipality. He is aged 34 years. He did not go far in education, so he started up a small business dealing in second-hand clothes. He used the profits of the business for his own subsistence, and also to take care of his siblings. This business grew and helped him to sustain his father’s family and support education for his younger brothers.

He later obtained a loan of UGX 400,000 from UGAFODE, which helped him to prosper. That success motivated him to mobilize his colleagues to form this group, called Koranorya Tweyombekye, a development group. This group has succeeded in other development projects. Now, they are requesting a loan of UGX 3,400,000, to help them increase their working capital for their respective businesses. They are hardworking people and are pledging to maintain the partnership. Dickson will specifically buy a bale of used clothing, if the group is given the loan.

In this group: Rosette, Mary Grace, Vicky, Landas, Lovas, Dickson
