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.
