A loan of $2,175 helped a member to buy bananas for making the local gin.


Pacwa Twimukye Group's story

Geofrey, age 34, is married with 5 children, ages 12, 10, 7, 5 and 3. Three of them are in school. He brews local gin as his major income generating activity, and he has been doing this since 2003 to earn a living. Geofrey has approached Ugafode for a loan of UGX.600,000 through his group of Pacwa to buy bananas for brewing more local gin (waragi), since the festive season which brings merry making is approaching and promises to pay after making profits. His dream is to become one of the leading distributors of the gin in the Kibaale district, since he thinks this will raise his income and help all his children complete a formal education. His main challenges are price fluctuations of the product and a poor road network. The gentleman extreme right in a tie is the Ugafode credit officer.
