Mvule Community Development
Alex B found some members at the field where they want to have a group garden project.They had finished to slash,cut the grass and the tree stamps by the time he arrived. The members were removing the grass , tree stamps from the land to make it ready for the oxen to plough.
The village has been dry without rain and the members thought it wisely to prepare the place as they wait for the rain that will soften the land for easy ox plough.
Mr.Swaib Kigoolo said that they already have the money to buy seeds of the peas to plant.He asked the members that in case it rains, the following day the oxen will plough the field. Frank pleaded to all the members to attend in person and participate in their group garden project.
Alex B thanked the members who participated in clearing the place to get it ready for ploughing.He told them they will use their garden as a demonstration project to all the members,the community and the village.He also told them to be noting down all the expenses that will be done on that project for accountability.
They later went back to the meeting place where they were joined by other members. Kaveera the secretary of the group told the members how far they had gone with opening group bank account. He said that,the signatories have finished to take pass port photographs required for opening the group bank account. They are just waiting for the photographer to take them to the nearby town for development and return them to the village. He said the moment they they receive them then they will proceed to the bank to process the group bank account.
on the issue of opening group bank account Alex B advised the signatories to prepare all the documents they need to carry along with them to the bank to avoid being bounced back by the bank.
