A loan of $2,650 helped a member to purchase more timber to resell.

Rugando Farmers And Traders Association Group A's story

Grace, a 31-year-old happy-go-lucky, self-assured and strong-willed mother of four, is a timber sales businesswoman operating from Kihihi in Western Uganda. She has been in this business for the past six years and she says what keeps her going is the ready market for timber in most parts of western Uganda.

Most of her clients are carpenters. Most of these carpenters purchase timber to make wooden chairs, side boards, doors and desks, which they sell.

On the side, Grace also has a tea farming business that she says brings in extra income for her.

Grace says she is requesting this Kiva loan to purchase more timber to resell.
