short visit in Ngeruka

A few weeks ago, we went to Ngeruka, Bugesera District to visit our bicycle cooperative consisting of approx. 30 persons. The attendees already have received a bicycle this year.

We passed out survey questionnaires to know about conditions of their bicycles. Moreover we asked for problems existing within the cooperative such as missing parts, not to be able to pay the microcredits or need of help for maintenance.

All in all it was examined that some people demand spare parts, but are able now to have bigger income because of overcoming distances easier and therefore selling more products. As well, the overwhelming majority is now able to save a certain amount of money. By that, living standards increase as children attend the school, parents achieve health insurance or buying and raising cattle. This might be used as permanent income generating for families.

Now we are occupied with evaluating the survey forms to give an update of the project to COOP Netherlands, our partner.
