Francis Ayo – Adolo Amido Coperative
“I used to take about 8 bottles of beer, but now, I only take water to save the money for my business. It used to cost me 3000 shillings times 8 bottles in 30 days, you can imagine that’s a lot of money which can cater for other things. Before we suffered in the hands of banks, we applied for loans, but we were never given.
After the ADC training, we sat down as a cooperative and decided that everyone contributes a shilling from the produce, we save it at cooperative level. As I talk now, we have saved 5 million shillings in our account and we have a good relationship with the DFCU bank now. They are so willing to give us money because we are more organized, we don’t delay, and they don’t delay serving us as a cooperative”
