A loan helped to buy rice seeds.

Mak Atek Farmers Group Adyegi's story

Nighty is forty-two years old and is married with four children, three of whom attend school. She grows rice, while her husband attends to a retail shop for additional income.

Nighty is requesting a loan from VisionFund Uganda to buy improved rice seeds. With pests and diseases challenging her agricultural ventures, she opted for improved rice seeds that are attacked less by pests. With these seeds, she will save money spent on purchasing pesticides and yet also achieve healthy and blooming yields.

On selling her yields, Nighty will be able to educate her children and also save to purchase land, so she can build a permanent house.

Hardworking Nighty is grateful to Kiva for the financial support.
