Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Theft With No Mercy

"Duetch" was an organisation that existed some years back."dutch" was more so a microfinance organisation that was said to be giving looms to people and indeed it was. As you know Africans particularly Ugandas, anything to do with loans takes the biggest portion into their hearts.People registered with Duetch and paid in some amount of money, i don't know how much but i here it was much money. People were told to wait for sometime so as to allow the processing of their loans. As time passed, people had to check whether the loans are still in process or not only to find the offices closed and dutch disappeared upto date.
