Rutaraka Community Group's story

Lea is requesting financial assistance to buy more cattle to trade in the festival season. Lea was born in the year 1948 and is a widowed mother of two children, whom she has managed to educate and are now employed.

Lea is a hard working woman involved in cattle trade and fattening and has a supplementary income from seasonal food-crop growing like beans, sweet potatoes and Irish potatoes. She has experienced six years in the business, and she hopes to have a comfortable life when she retires, although her business is affected by cattle quarantines.

Lea says the death of her husband inspired her to start the business and look after the family. Lea is a member of Rutabaga Community Group.
