Alex B lead the members of Bupaluka in their discussion of how to keep records of their group. The chairperson of the group Mr.Mutooto Saul raised a concern of how as committee should keep the property of the group.He was considering money and other things in form of cash and crops.He said the income of people in village depend on crops.The money and the crops are related to one another. This is when they want to start a saving scheme in their group. The money to be saved by members is expected from selling some items mostly from the crops and other businesses.The members can save certain type of crop as they could agree on the amount of kilograms to save with their treasury. Then Betty one the member also raised issue of store and how to records in it. Mulondo who is a members of the group said that a store should be locked with a padlock and key be kept by the store keeper who should be answerable to executive committee.
