The Savings culture that we learnt during the training bore fruits when we started a savings group, the “Innovators Savings Group”, but due to the lock down (COVID-19 induced locked instituted in March 2020) our group collapsed instantly.  

Many of us were affected. Bency’s restuarant suffered a big loss as most offices were closed. Enon, a secondary school teacher in Oyam District, had no source of income due to closure of schools.  

Hence, the group was put on hold till further notice. We are looking forward to starting over again.
