Bukaluba Sibutankdikeko Group's story

The Bukaluba Sibutankdikeko group is located in a rural area and has 10 members: Joseph, Paul, Willy, Juliet, Costa, Agnes, Sarah, Ronmary, Pius and Fred. They are involved in different activities including farming, retail, passion fruit farming, produce trading, market vending, local brewing and textiles.

Joseph is the group's featured borrower. He has his hand raised in the photo. He is a married man, 45 years old, with six children, four of whom attend school. He deals in local brewing and he does farming as a side business. He started his brewing business in 1996 in order to improve his standard of living and to pay school fees for his children. His clients are people from the surrounding area.

Joseph's major challenges are the lack of sufficient working capital and clients who take too long to pay their debts. As a result, he acquired this loan to boost his businesses. His hope is to one day buy a plot for his family, educate his children and grow his business.

In this group: Sarah, Ronmary, Joseph, Juliet, Paul, Willy, Agnes, Costa, Pius, Fred*
