community meeting 
Abraham met eighty three Butamoga community members and the chairperson Mss Jenifer told the meeting that they started a saving group. They save every Wednesday and each member saves at least two thousand shillings. They made a box with three padlocks with three keys where they put their money so that if to open it all the three people have to be present. They said five members exchanged their goats into cows and they gave some offsprings to the new members who has shown interest in the group and these are some of the things he or she has to have. To make sure has planted not less than five trees including Mvule. Attends the group meeting. Ready to cooperate with the group members Have a latrine, dish rack and smeared the houses. The leaders of the group they go and check those things if they are in the place then they tell the group which declares him or her as a group member. Abraham thanked the leaders and the members for keeping the trees, goats well and he asked them about their registration and they said that it expired last month, he advised them to re-register the group so that the government knows that they are still existing. They took some pictures of the goats together with the members and left trees and goats evaluation form to be signed by the members. Abraham will collect them after they have finished.
