Tukolenamani Farmers Mbaraara Group's story

Imeldah is requesting a loan facility to buy bean seeds and pay labor for planting the crops. She is a very active member of Tukolenamani Farmers Mbaraara Group, where members guarantee each other to access financial support to develop their home livelihood. She is a divorced woman and a mother of 4 children. She is charged with the responsibility of paying school fees for her children.

Her main economic activity is farming, and she grows crops like bananas, beans and cassava. Imeldah is, however, challenged by pests and diseases plus the prolonged drought. She also operates a retail shop that sell general merchandise after attending to her gardens and when it is not the season for farming. For the 6 years in business, she is proud of her work since it earns her income to look after her family.
