Kanyansheko Bakyara Twimukye Group, Ibanda's story

T. Margaret appears in the small photo at the top right and she also appears in the big group photo as the group leader. She is a married woman with three kids, all going to school.

Margaret is one extraordinary woman, who has chosen a predominantly male occupation - farming. For the last twenty years she has gone through this farming mill in Kanyansheko village, Ibanda district. It’s with her experience and sense of hard work that she has been able to make successful strides in a male-dominated field.

Currently, Margaret is making profits to the tune of 40,000 shillings a month. It’s apparent that these profits are minimal by her standards, and also going by the status quo. Her future plans, on getting a loan, are to expand her business and to improve her family’s welfare.

In this group: Margaret, Jane, Vincent, Dativa, Jane, Jacenta, Oliver, Edmond, Edra, Innocent, Wilson, Anthony, Bonny, Gastone, Nekemiya
