A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy timber to use.


Kidindimya Tweyambe Group's story

John is a 54-year-old man, married with 6 children, living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He is a member of Village bank where each member guarantees the others to get a loan. John has been in a carpentry business for 13 years, and with the income he has been able to build a house and also pay school fees for his children.

The high cost of timber and inadequate capital to hire enough labor affect his business, since the demand for furniture is overwhelming, while his desire is to own a modern workshop in the town center.

A good father that he is, he desires to educate his children up to the University, and also to set up a number of income generating activities to secure the future. John is requesting a loan to buy timber to use. Some of the members did not take the loan but because it's a group policy they appear in the photo to guarantee the others.
