Kyamagero Ruth, Group Loan, ID: 31

Ruth is looking for a loan to restock her stall with items like Potatoes, Banana plantains (matooke), charcoal and vegetables such as tomatoes, egg plants, cabbage, green pepper etc. When vegetables and bananas are not sold in a week or so, there is a risk that they can go bad since she has no fridge to keep them. However, It’s good that she has many customers and hardly experiences over stayed stock.

Due diligence status
This finance group was formed by 5 women pioneer members with the aim of taking group loans from Sseguku Microfinance to finance their individual businesses respectively. The group is found in Lweza Cell B, a village located North Eastern part of Kajjansi town in a distance of approximately 1.5 km along Entebbe airport road. Since it’s a residential area, people set up businesses on individual basis such as in their homes, garages, backyard, along the street in make-shift structures etc. It makes them prone to varying challenges compared to those in an organized market but on the other hand leverage on less expenses like rent, taxes etc.
The first group of 5 women members were categorized into a sub unit which they unanimously given a name Favour to easily manage the group. The name was suggested by Sifa, the chairperson and seconded by the rest of the group members.
