Rwengyiri Tweyambe Group's story

Allen is a divorced woman with three children of which two are in school, and one who dropped out due to lack of tuition.

Allen operates a small bar in the trading centre. Allen also is a farmer and sells agricultural produce on a small scale because of limited capital. She requested for a loan through the group to add to her working capital so as to increase her cash flow. She will use the rest of the money to pay school fees for her children and buy them a few basic needs. Her customers are people around the centre who buy her items especially for home consumption. Her major challenge is competition and inadequate capital to run the business which affect her during her business operations.

Despite all these challenges, Allen is a very hard working woman who is striving hard to provide a good education and a good standard of living for her children. And she thinks with support from her group members, Kiva lenders as well as UGAFODE, her dreams will come true.
