Kasenyi United Group's story

Zakiel is a member of the Kasenyi United Group (Sub Group B). He runs a fishing business in Kasenyi, which is found in the Kasese district. He is the father of three children aged nine, six and four and he also has takes care of two other children.

He joined the business world in 1986 when he was still a young boy. He helped his father with the fishing business until he grew into a responsible man and started his own business with the purpose of earning a living. He was convinced that the direction he took was a good one since his father was able to look after them using the profits from the fishing business. Zakiel works an average of nine hours per day and uses three hours per day to try market the fish he gets.

He would like to use the loan to start a retail shop since he is faced with the challenge of stiff competition in the fishing business. He is hopeful that the retail shop will bring him higher profits in a given period than the fishing business. He has wanted to pull out of the fishing business for some time. Zakiel is hard working and, if given the loan, will make sure that he puts it to good use so that he can ably pay it back, earn profits and be in the position to pay tuition for his children and meet their other needs.
