If you subsist on agriculture, like N. Immaculate has found out, you need enormous reserves of patience to succeed. That particular attribute has manifestly worked in Immaculate’s favor. She speaks with pride of how her four children can all attain an education in institutions of learning.
Immaculate’s proficiency in attending to her banana plantation for the last sixteen years in Ruyonza, Ibanda District, has borne her fruits of economic development. In a month, she makes profits to the tune of 300,000 Ugandan shillings. The only major drawn out problem that has plagued her business has been the persistent low banana market prices in villages and the fact that she has no ready means of transporting her produce to bigger markets.
It’s Immaculate’s reckoning that this loan will come in handy in helping her enhance her banana plantations on a large scale through mulching and buying fertilizer.
