People living with HIV and AIDS in Rakai District want government to provide them with a special privilege, to have easy access to the prosperity for all funds, commonly known as ibonnabagagawale fundi. Led by their Chairperson, Primrose Ntandayarwo, the HIV positive patients said that the funds would not only help boost their incomes but also improve their standards of living. Ntandayarwo said that last year, members paid 10,000 shillings each to join a microfinance group but the group soon collapsed because of management problems. She says that the members are now determined to organize themselves more effectively to access sources of funding. She however said that many HIV positive patients have not been sensitized about the prosperity for all program. //Cue iSo we were trying#..i Cue i#..different challengesi.
