A loan of $2,500 helped a member buy more fish for sale and hire labor on her farm.

Bakyala Kwekulakulanya 2 Group's story

M. Teddy, 49, is the leader of her group and has various businesses such as having banana, beans and maize plantations, buying and selling coffee, and buying and selling small fish from her neighboring landing sites. Teddy is married with 8 children and she looks after 4 grandchildren. All her children are currently out of school, except one who is soon joining university, but she also pays school fees for her 4 grandchildren whose parents died of AIDS.

She is grateful for the loans because as a result of investing more into her businesses, she makes enough profits that help to cater for her family and pay her grandchildren’s school fees, while not forgetting to repay her loans promptly. She needs a loan to help her buy more fish for sale and partly for labor on her farm. In the photo at the front is their credit officer.
