A loan helped to build a pigsty.

Obanga Pe Wany Farmers Group's story

Santa is a sixty-six-year-old Ugandan living in Aber; she is married and has three children who all attend school. Together with her husband she raises pigs and also grows crops for a side income.

Santa is requesting a loan from VisionFund Uganda to build a pigsty, as she plans on enlarging her piggery business. Santa, having been in piggery for 25 years now, believes that, with this experience, she will be able to compete for larger markets all over the country. With that in mind, and with her increasing number of pigs, Santa states that the pigsty she has can no longer serve her growing farm. With a well-built and bigger sty, her pigs will be safe from all weather changes and robbers, thus helping them grow healthy and enabling her to compete in the markets countrywide.

With income from her sales, she hopes to buy a car to facilitate the transportation of her animals to different market areas. "I am grateful to Kiva for solving my financial inabilities and thus helping me achieve my dreams," she states.
