Godfrey Sentume Arinaitwe:
My Name is Godfrey Sentume Arinaitwe; born and raised in Buyanja Town. On 12.09.2008; I opened an account, bought shares and applied for a loan that was meant to offset my Mum’s bad Loan at the time which she had secured for Education of my siblings but defaulted on its payment. It’s then that I started enjoying the benefits of Buyanja SACCO.
Since 2008; I have secured loans from a number of commercial banks and SACCOs. To judge my loan experience, I will state it that I have enjoyed more of the relationship with the Buyanja SACCO because it trusted me with a loan at the time when no one else could. Secondly, the process of securing a loan from Buyanja SACCO is so smooth and quick to an extent of receiving your account credited within a period of 8 hours. Kudos!!!!!!!
This speed and smoothness of the loan process has made our (with my wife Moreen) investing in home area Buyanja quiet easy. We have been able to buy pieces of land including contributing to the construction of Night Sentume’s family house in Nyakaina with support from Buyanja SACCO. We have also ensured that all our 4 children have accounts and shares in Buyanja SACCO.
I have used every opportunity available to convince and encourage my peers, my family, and my friends to join the SACCO and enjoy the following benefits among others;
- Quick and Smooth loans for Development
- Home Identity (Connects you to your roots)
- Annual Dividends from your shares
- Contributing to the development of Buyanja (Our Home Area)
“There is that satisfaction you receive when you know that your contribution touches the lives of your people and as well the profits from your contribution are not only shared by yourself but also your Village mates”
