Notes
Abraham met thirty three Ikumbya community members, the purpose of the meeting was to discuss how they will open a group account. The chairperson Mss Nabirye told the meeting that she met a certain member from a group that has an account and he told her that they can open an account in Centenary Bank which has a branch in Kamuli town. They said they will send two members to go to Kamuli and check what is required for them as a group to open an account. Abraham and Chris encouraged the group because they are going to start selling eggs from the chickens. To keep a group money in the house is so difficult because anything can happen to it either stealing it or using it but replacing it may become a problem but when the money is in the bank it takes effort to get it. They are going to meet and get how much each will contribute towards the opening of the group account and also the chief of Ikumbya sub county wants to visit the group and see what they are doing. The meeting started a little bit late and it was going to rain and the roads are so bad that even some sugar trucks got stuck in the middle of the road so Abraham and Chris decided to leave the village. 

Next Visit: 2019-07-12 - Purpose: To go with the chief of Ikumbya sub county and discuss how they can work with the government
