Alex B and Chris met community of Bupaluka about their treasury,how members will benefit from their garden project. We also discussed the way forward for next season since their income mostly is from farming Peter the treasurer said that members were concerned with the development within the group. That members were not properly saving since the saving was small from the members..The group was depending on what is from their labour but thought it good to have some donors. The chairperson of the group reported that the garden project was doing good since rain season was favorable. He reminded the members always to check up with their project to see how it doing. Living one of the member also was concerned about planning for group since their main activities in their community are farming and raring animals. Alex B advised them with issues of their treasury to do saving however small might be. The external donors mostly depend on how the group is doing. It is important to keep their registration valid. He advised them that during time for harvesting that when they making good saving. The issue of how the members will benefit from the project,is that members learn how to plan for their garden. The type and quality of seeds to planted. Working relationship among the members in the group can be achieved.
