Uganda cooperative Savings and Credit Union (UCSCU)

UCSCU is a national apex for Savings and Credit Cooperative organizations (SACCOs) in Uganda.
FL interventions: Collins Nyangaro is a certified financial literacy trainer by Bank of Uganda, and a Regional Manager in charge of Western Uganda at Uganda Cooperative Savings and Credit Union (UCSCU).

I have made countless financial literacy interventions in Western Uganda especially among women, youth.
Through SACCO general membership trainings and sensitisations, i have made a difference in the lives of many, helping them to put their finances in order thereby enabling them to save, invest and effectively plan for their old age.
At personal level, i have a mushroom growing project (called UNDUGU MUSHROOMS)as well as a piggery project PLUS backyard farming which i use to train the youth, women and organized community groups in enterprise development.
At Undugu Mushrooms and Piggery project, we appreciate that people learn better when they HEAR, SEE and DO. So i have set up a DEMONSTRATION AND RESOURCE CENTER which i use to demonstrate to my trainees that these projects are very possible, largely because they are;
* not capital intensive
* not labour intensive YET
- they have quick rate of return on investment
- highly nutritious
- highly medicinal
- Limited operational space required
- ready market
- good prices (8,000 to 10,000= per kg of fresh mushrooms)
- can be done at home
- Most importantly, they are not greatly affected by CLIMATE CHANGE

My passion to change people's lives earned me an All expenses paid trip to Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University (FAFU) in the Peoples Republic of China for an international course in Juncao Technology for Developing Anglophone countries, an intervention that the Chinese use to enhance mushroom production while averting the effects of climate change at the same time.

My passion for financial literacy has seen me voluntarily conduct FL in churches, Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs), schools,regional workshops, companies, universities, District Local governments, Fishing villages,family fellowships, women's groups (like mothers union) and even (open)markets.

Together with a colleague(Fortunate Rukundo), we organize monthly Motivational talks in Rukungiri district (through the "ACHIEVERS' FORUM) where we invite other like-minded Inspirational speakers to discuss key topics regarding PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, ATTITUDE/MINDSET CHANGE,VALUES CLARIFICATION, PRUDENT INVESTMENT CHOICES,BUSINESS IDEAS, RETIREMENT PLANNING ETC

Further, i have already documented some of my financial literacy information in a magazine called "The treasure" and in the school magazine of Kyamakanda Secondary school in Rukungiri.

I have now started writing a book on mindset change as the key to financial freedom.

Further,i have also trained community change agents and model youth and practically demonstrated FL through personal initiatives like CUSTOMIZED Ms.EXCEL BUDGET TRACKERS which help people in tracking their finances.

Recently, i discovered a mobile App called "My Money Manager" which helps to one track their incomes and expenditure and automatically guide them in assessing their spending patterns through auto-generated pie-charts and graphs that compare different periods.
I have already shared this with so many colleagues (including some staff and trainers at BOU) and the results are impressive.

I could go on and on....

Kezzi HeadStart

KEZZI HEADSTART
KEZZI HEADSTART is a multi discipline consultancy service provider. Our service provision competitive advantage stems from our ability to exhibit professionalism, honesty, excellent customer care, reliability, promptness, value for money and ability to provide quick solutions to complex challenges.

The work of KEZZI HEADSTART is closely integrated as a holistic package. KEZZI HEADSTART’s ongoing work in development helps communities provide such things as education, health, water/sanitation, and food security.

WHO WE SERVES

KEZZI HEADSTART focuses its financial services on the families and communities where we work. We serves people in need regardless of race, religion, gender or ethnicity. KEZZI HEADSTART predominantly focuses its attention in poor rural areas, because they are often more neglected and unable to get financial help.

In addition, KEZZI HEADSTART’s preferred target groups include:

• The hardworking poor who have a desire to be microentrepreneurs, but have never been given a chance. Helping them truly gives them a HeadStart. This practice helps the community to lift itself out of poverty more quickly than would otherwise occur.

• Microentrepreneurs with prior business skills. They are more likely to repay their loans and are a natural fit to be mentors and help implement best practices to new microentrepreneurs.

• Women Entrepreneurs. Many studies have verified that female entrepreneurs use their business income more for the needs of their children than male clients, and thus more readily help communities lift themselves out of poverty.

• Youth Entrepreneurs. Who are struggling to make ends meet and want to create something to sustain themselves other than struggling for the little or almost absent jobs

How KEZZI HEADSTART WORKS

KEZZI HEADSTART provides the poor with financial choices. Through their work, a family is able to accumulate assets and build up their small businesses one step at a time. Their aim is to provide the necessary training and resources for each family to maintain the provision of food for their children, create savings for emergency needs, afford medical care for their family, build up their businesses and send their children to school.

As their financial prospects grow, families will have more options and can even access more advanced credit markets through KEZZI HEADSTART.
