Katebo Business Group1's story

A. Martin, a member of Katebo group in Buwama and a married man caring for his immediate family, is a fisherman at the landing site in Katebo. He owns a boat and a variety of other fishing materials including nets and hooks for use in his business. Martin is also a farmer with various plantations that are mostly in the care of his wife, children and helpers who are paid for their duties.



Martin has a plan to buy more boats to hire out to fellow fishermen, hoping to thereby increase revenue and savings. He is happy that with previous loans he was able to buy standard fishing nets and hooks that trap good quality fish, thus attracting a large number of customers. Martin is now requesting a loan in order to buy another fishing net for his business.
