Kyosiga Women's Group's story

M. Joyce, 50, is the chairperson of the Kyosiga Women’s group in Kayunga. She is both a farmer and a business woman, selling ladies' clothes (mostly underclothes) to women in their offices, hospitals, schools and homes as a side business since 1990. Joyce buys her inventory from Kampala, mostly on Thursdays and Mondays every week.

As a farmer, Joyce grows beans, potatoes, and cassava and sells her crops to tenders, who supply this food to schools and usually pay her each week. At times when the season is not favorable for her, Joyce buys crops from fellow farmers and then supplies them to her customers. She has enough land for this farming and employs laborers to quicken the work. She is married with three grown children and she cares for 8 grandchildren at home.

Joyce needs a loan to buy dried beans for sale. She will share the loan with the 14 other members of her group.

In this group: Joyce, Justine, Christine, Yudaya, Christine, Harriet, Rose, Kate, Rose, Harriet, Rose, Sylivia, Mary, Sauda, Sylivia
