Kitebero Model Group's story

Kitebero Model group is located in the district of Mbarara. The group is comprised of men and women, whose major activity is agriculture. They fall into different categories, including divorcees, widows, single mothers, and a few who are married.

Zahara is a resident of Kitebero, in Mbarara district. She is aged 30 years. She did not go far in education, so she started commercial farming in order to survive and also to cater for her family. This business grew and helped her to sustain the family and support education for her children. Later, she obtained a loan from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited, which has helped her to prosper. This motivated her to mobilize her colleagues, to form a development group called Kitebero Model Group. This group is very determined to change each member’s life. The group has succeeded in many developmental projects, but with a lot of challenges. That is why they are requesting a loan of 4,800,000. It will help them increase their working capital for their different business.

Zahara will use her part of the loan to buy pesticides for her cabbages and tomatoes. This should enable her to have a better yield, this season.
