Rwengiri Modern Group, Ibanda's story

B. Agnes appears at the top left in the small photo just like in the group photo as the group leader.

It’s rare to come by female farmers in Uganda, but here is an exception. At the age of 38, B. Agnes is defying this stereotype and she has been a farmer from Kafunda in Ibanda for two years.

Agnes’s future prospects do not seem to be bad due to her hard work and friendliness. She will be able to expand her business and elevate her family’s standard of living, once she can access a loan to be able to pay her workers and buy manure and mulch her farm.

Agnes is grateful for her loans since she has benefitted a lot and makes more profits from the increased investments.
