My name is Patrick, I am 45 years old and I have five children.
Before the Church and Community Mobilization Process (CCMP) was introduced in our church, I was very poor and I was living in a very old house which was almost collapsing on me and my children. But when I joined the CCMP/PEP lessons, I learnt how to use the available resources that the Lord has given me and also work hard to sustain my family.
The programme had a credit and saving group but I had refused to join because I dint know how I would get what to save every month. However, I was encouraged by my Pastor and the CCMP facilitator, Aunt Georgina to join the group. I got courage and joined the group, I worked so hard to get what to save monthly and also feed my family.
When my savings accumulated, I borrowed money from the saving group and started constructing a house. Right now, I have a new home which cost me UGX 7,000,000 which I had failed to build before. I am thankful to God that CCMP was introduced to our Church. May God bless Share an Opportunity Uganda.
