Objective: To enhance the economic resilience and livelihoods of its members.
This is a project that consists of self-help groups that were set up by the support of CCUg to enable rural women to pool their savings, provide access to small loans and promote financial literacy and social support.
Nine groups came together to save and borrow money for the previous three months and more details are shown in the table below
The majority of their businesses had improved and their saving and borrowing was good compared to the first quarter of last year as shown in the table below.
Some members who used to come late have improved in their time management.
Weather conditions (rainy season) affected member’s attendance in the groups especially Mauta Group.
Fluctuation in prices leads to a reduction in customers because the products become more expensive. For example the tomatoes’ prices were higher and onions and even these women who would buy in whole sell and sell as retail, the prices were higher and therefore the products would take longer at the shelves.
The leaders of the Wabulungu group should have a note book to write in every money brought a day before or early morning before the facilitator goes there inorder to avoid complaints from members.
