Okelo Kuc Farmers Group Eduka's story

Juspine is a forty-six-year-old female Ugandan living in Aber. She is married with four children, three of whom attend school. Together with her husband, they grow tomatoes and green peppers.

She is requesting a loan from VisionFund Uganda to buy seeds. Having grown tomatoes and green pepper for twenty years now, Juspine hopes that with quality seeds, she will be able to increase the productivity of her farm. "They have brought improved seeds to the market, which yield well and yet don't need a lot of attention in terms of spraying, watering, etc. With these, I will be able to save since I will cut off some labour," she said.

Juspine believes that she will have a great harvest which she will then sell off, and with the income be able to save for her children's college education.She is grateful to Kiva for the opportunity for finances that have improved her standards of living.
