Jing Cwinyi Women Group's story

Rose is a 45-year-old woman living in Gulu and divorced, with five children who all attend school. She has been farming for over 10 years, growing rice, millet, and simsim (sesame), as well as keeping animals like cows and goats. In addition to her farming she operates a retail shop.

She is requesting a loan from VisionFund to buy quality seeds in order to have a higher harvest and get better income, with which she plans to buy another calf. Rose's dream is to see her children go to better schools. She believes that through farming, she will get there.

Rose describes herself as social, however excessive rains remain a challenge. She thanks Kiva for the support.
