Notes
When Alex B arrived at Naisamula,he found the members waiting for him at their usual meeting place.They had an opening prayer that was led by Manyike one of the group members. The chairperson of the group Martin Kisira thanked all the members who turned up for the meeting.In his remarks,he told them to continue looking after the trees that was given to them by kibo group.He said that some members who have not taken back the offspring in form of money to do so.The members had agreed to take back money in form of offsprings that is to pay sh.15000 as offspring to Kagawa ( a member who was in charge of collecting it,) had not handed it to the treasurer.The money that was got from the group garden project of maize and soybeans was still with Kirovisi Manyike the in charge for keeping group garden produce.The group had renewed its registration for three years.The group is in process of buying a receipt book and opening a bank account at it was advised by their sub county CDO.He told them as there money from the government for groups as loans.It is only registered groups that meet or have requirements to receive that money. Ida one of the members said that most of the don’t have an update or an accountability from the group leaders about the previous harvest from their group garden. She said the members were not consulted before their products were sold and they don’t know how much came out of the sales. Alex B thanked them for keeping the group going on and asked them to continue with that spirit.He asked them to have team spirit of working together.He advised the leaders to be accountable to the members of the group. The maize and soybeans issue ,since it was sold and part of the money was used to renew their group registration and balance was kept with the treasurer. On the issue of the money got from the offspring of the goats , Alex B advised them to keep the money with the group treasurer.This will help them to keep their finances with one person for easy management. He also advised them that before they receive the finances from the government as loans to read and understand the terms and conditions about it. He told them that the government will just recommend them to get money from the bank of which may be at high percentage. He wished them a nice way of developing their families,group and the village.
