Notes
Abraham met thirty four Sinde and the chairman Mr Okecho told the meeting that they checked the trees, goats and found out that there some members who exchanged their goats into a cow like Birenge who got a good cow now instead of six goats. He said that they met and discussed about issues concerning the community and the church which ended by church members had to go and negotiate with the land own where the church building is now. Abraham introduced to them about opening of a group account, he told them that it will be good for them as they think about buying plastic chairs as group so that they will be renting it to some people and they will be getting some money for the group. This is why it is important to have a group account because it is hard to keep group money in the house. The members discussed and they said it is a good idea but they were concerned about the distance because they said in Namayingo they do not have any bank their the only bank which is there is a micro-finance and they do not want to back their money in a bank which not stable. They want to open a group account in banks like Centenary, Backlys, or Stanbic. They said that those banks are in Bugiri which far away from them. Abraham advised them not to do it because he has said it but he was Ted them to discuss about and if they see it does not work then they can think of another alternative. They said they will call another meeting to see if they open the bank account in Bugiri or not and they asked Abraham to be in that meet they on that day. 

Next Visit: 2019-07-05 - Purpose: To finalize whether they will open a bank account in Bugiri town or not and what way forward.
