community meeting 
Alex B met thirty six members of Bupaluka about how to open a group bank account.Saul the chairperson of the group reported as the leaders are compiling document for opening bank account.He added that work is not yet ready for discussion.This is not there fast time to do it but after failing with centenary bank in Jganga town. Alex B advised them to work together until the account is opened. The ideas should be discussed to come up with a document that will help them.He told them to consult their CDO of the sub county. They are meant to get a recommendation from his office.The letter will be addressed to the branch bank manager.He asked them to begin thinking of how to raise money when time comes for opening the account.He reminded them to always to attend meetings for discussion. He was taken around to see their group garden project of soybeans and cassava. The project was doing good as soybeans had put ready on pods .The cassava is was promising and there is high hope of good yield. Alex B advised them to keep the garden without weed and also to do pruning of the cassava stems. The living trees were doing good. I managed to see some for Saul and Living which proved to be healthy.The reason was they are receiving enough rain.It was reported that all the living trees are good.
