Nyakanyinya Group's story
Nyakanyinya Group is located in Bitereko in one of the western districts of Uganda. The group is comprised of men and women whose major activity is farming and small-scale trade. Some are widowers, and some are married men and women. Feresiana is a married mother of four children with two additional dependents. Her four children help her with the agricultural work that yields income for the family's livelihood. Feresiana is mainly a small scale trader of services with a concentration on growing sugar cane which is processed to produce the local gin. The business helped the family to survive. She is currently running the business with about 700,000 UGX, a limited amount of capital. She will use the loan to buy farming inputs, specifically organic mature and fertilizers to grow sugar cane. The loan will also help in her local processing, a business in which she has experience. Her main challenge is weather which affects her production processes. Her dream is to become stable and have a decent house built to settle in with her family. Feresiana is very hardworking with passion, a reason she is looking after two additional children. She also respects her payment dates. She is grateful to her fellow group members because they are standing by her side. She is also grateful for the Kiva lenders for taking an interest in supporting them.
