The Mvule group in this village started by Kibo group is very active. They are processing another loan together that amount to 36M from the bank. They will each receive 1M for agriculture purposes like growing rice, cabbages and others. This group first received 20M from the bank and were able to cover it up in a period of 6 months.

Committee Challenges
Due to the bad location of the borehole, being in the bush and no person lives nearby the borehole. It makes it very hard for them to monitor this borehole even at night 
Operating
yes 
Other Committee Notes
The committee has had many challenges and one of them is that the borehole being located in a bushy area where there are no people that stay nearby has Made people to steal the fence poles and very hard to monitor. Also the people break the locks since no one is there to monitor the borehole at night giving a chance to those people that don’t want to pay to steal water at night. There are still many people that come to get water from this borehole and others from the kapasuli section still come to this borehole because they have not got their own borehole. Kapasuli is located with in Maliga village but technically it’s a village on its own and they also applied to Kibo for water. Alex followed on this and nothing has yet changed, so there is still need in that section. About 60 homes are in Kapasuli village 
Ws Notes
This borehole in Maliga was drilled in 1994 by the government. It was installed with U3 stainless pipes. Kibo went back last year may 2017 and repaired it. This borehole has never had any breakdowns from last year when Kibo fixed it.
