Magezi Buggaga Lending Group's story

S. Lawrence is a married man with two children; he also cares for one orphaned child. All of the children attend the same primary school.

Lawrence has been a motorcycle mechanic in Kisoga for 7 years, and he has been a member of his lending group, Magezi buggaga, since its inception two years ago. He started getting loans in order to improve his business, and the loans taught him to save. He was able to buy a motorcycle of his own, which he uses a boda-boda (a bicycle or motorcycle taxi) to bring in extra income every day. He also started up a stall where his wife sells fresh produce and greens; this also helps to supply part of their household needs.

Lawrence is seeking for a loan to buy more materials for his workshop, including a tire pumping machine, screwdrivers, and many other tools.

In this group: Lawrence, Jane, Amis, Peter, John, Zaidi, Lawrence
