Oryem Can Group's story

Grace is a 51-year-old female widow living in Gulu, and has 2 grandchildren whom attend school. She is a farmer who grows beans, maize, sunflower and raises pigs for a living. Grace also runs a retail shop for additional income.

Her crops have germinated but they need fertilizer, in order for her to gain a better harvest. She is requesting a loan from VisionFund to buy fertilizer for her crops. Thereafter, she will be able to support the education of her grandchildren and also meet the family's basic needs.

Grace is challenged by a prolonged drought and limited capital. She thinks that with the continuous support from KIVA, she will be able to overcome them.
