Tusitukire Wamu Workers Group's story
Prossy is a farmer who grows bananas in a rural area in Kyotera. She is forty six years of age and she started farming in 1998 with a hope of getting a clear source of income which she would use to provide the basic needs to her family members. Farming is his major source of income and she also sells milk which gives her additional income. She has applied for a loan through the group to be able to buy fertilizers. She hopes that this will boost the fertility of the soils where her garden is and hence will get enough incomes from the increased yields. Her clients are mainly the residents in the same area where she operates from and a few town dwellers. Prossy is a hard working woman who works five days in the banana plantation every week and uses the other two days of the week to look for market for his tea. She is mainly challenged by the weather especially during the dry season since it does not favour the bananas which instead dry up. However, she is hopeful that if she gets the loan and applies the fertilizers, the yields will be higher and he will get relatively big profits from the business and be in position to provide for her family members adequately.
