Rukungiri Business community urged to form more groups to share on national cake


RUKUNGIRI– The Sacco members of Rukungiri district traders Sacco have been called upon to form more groups as the only way of benefiting on the national cake.

While officiating at the 1st Sacco’s annual general meeting, Jackson Kizza, the Rukungiri district national resistance movement (NRM) elections officer pointed out that the only way of sharing on the national cake is by forming groups since the government is currently investing money in organized groups that aim at developing members.

Perry Owoyesigyire the Rukungiri Municipality Commercial Officer asked the Sacco members to always ensure timely payment of loans to save the Sacco from spending more on loan recovery which at times hinders development of the Sacco.  

He tasked the Sacco administration and the board to invest more in community mobilization if the Sacco is to develop and provide effective financial assistance.

Owoyesigyire also asked the members to buy more shares and increase share capital which will boost the Sacco development.
