A loan helped to hire labor for harvesting.

Aojakitoi Business Group's story

Florence is a 53-year-old widow with one child who attends school. She grows sorghum and millet to support her family.

Florence's agricultural ventures are challenged by drought and lack of capital to hire labor for harvest. Most of her crops get damaged because of overstaying in the farms and thus get destroyed by the sun.

She is requesting for a loan from VisionFund Uganda to hire labor for harvesting. With more hands, her yields will be harvested on time and will safely be transported to the markets in bulk, which she will later sell. With the income, she will be able to acquire more land to expand her farm and later construct a house for her old age.

Hardworking as she describes herself, Florence is grateful to Kiva for the financial support.
