A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy stocks of corn flour to supply to supermarkets.

Bamwe Group's story

Eunice is twenty-six, a member of Bamwe group, and a mother of two school-going children. Eunice dropped out of school and got married at the early age of nineteen. Being a businessman, her husband encouraged her to begin a business, so in 2011 she began a business supplying general merchandise to different supermarkets and shops within Kampala. She believes her business is doing well. The aim of the business is to supplement the earnings of her husband so they can look after their family. Eunice approached UGAFODE for a group loan to boost her business. With her portion of the loan, she will buy more stocks of flour. She is very hard working, trustworthy and focused. She thanks the group members and Kiva lenders for a job well done. Eunice is second from the left in the photograph with her hand raised.
