Gema Misere Group's story

Florence N. is the leader of the Gema Misere loan group in Mityana. She is a farmer who grows matooke, beans, maize and cassava on plantations that she has owned for a very long time. Once the produce is ready for sale, she sells from her home as well as taking it to the market to sell at a favorable price. As a result of getting loans for three years now, she has been able to include the keeping of cows and goats at her home with the savings from her previous cycles, as well as develop her home by buying furniture for her home. Her children are in school and generally the standard of living is great! Florence needs a loan to be able to buy produce from other farmers so as to supply her regular customers plus the many extra due to the festival season. She hopes the the profits will help her with school fees come next year. Other group members have very similar aspirations.
