The officer decried low repayments by the groups which were given the Uwezo Fund by the Government.

However he stated the groups are supposed to have repaid the Uwezo Fund loan by 50 per cent by now, but surprisingly enough the groups have so far repaid 13 per cent which is extremely too low.

She also asked the groups to hasten the repayment of their loans so as to enable other groups to benefit from the same loan products.
