I am Sister Clare Mugisha, and I was born in Rukungiri 55 years ago. I currently live and work in Oyam District as the Headmistress of Iceme Girls S.S and joined Pride through the Lira branch in 2013.
I started by saving Ugx.300,000 monthly, on my personal account and I later opened an account for the school where parents deposit school fees for the students.
As an institution, we have maintained a warm relationship with Pride ever since, and they have given us a lot of support over the years. Forexample, in 2014, we had financial challenges and were prompted to take a loan, which was processed and given to us in time. Pride has also helped us with printing of deposit slips for our students to use for banking their school fees.
Pride feels like home to me and their staff have always been welcoming. In 2016, we faced a tragedy, where heavy rainstorms blew down the administration block of our school. Pride came to our rescue and donated 30 bags of cement, through their Corporate Social Responsibility agenda. This enabled us to start the reconstruction process.
In addition, banking with Pride has enabled e to monitor the transactions on both my personal savings account and the school’s account with ease.
Their instant SMS alerts keep me updated on any transaction happening on any of the accounts we run.
