community meeting 
Alex B met thirty four members about the process of opening group bank account.The members after failing to open one with centenary bank in Iganga town. The chairperson of the group Saul told the members as there was a need to have un account with the bank before there crops are ready.He said it will help the group to save their money.He added on that since harvest period is about to ready,it will work good with they already have one.The community will save their money with the group account after selling their crops as individuals. Saul said there is preparation that is required by members for the group.There documents that they had as they went to centenary bank.That information could not help them to achieve what they wanted. It was high time for them as members again to make what it takes to to open one with the post bank. Alex B advised them to meet the CDO of their sub county for more help about the bank account. He told them to get a recommendation letter from the CDO backing their constitution. That will mean that the group is operating legally and can get help from any institution. The chairperson is required to write application letter addressed to the bank manager of the branch.He asked them pass a resolution that gives the signatories permission to conduct business on their behalf. All the members should sign that document with their contact address.He told them also to save money for opening their bank account. Banks have different initial amount to begin with for opening..
