Twimukyangane Kasambya Farmers Group's story

Margret is requesting a loan to buy bean seeds and to pay labor for planting the crops. She is a very active member of Twimukyangane Kasambya Farmers Group, where members guarantee each other to access financial support to develop their home livelihood.

Her main economic activity is farming. She grows crops like bananas, beans and cassava. She is a divorced woman, a mother of six children, and she is charged with the responsibility of paying school fees for her children.

Margret is, however, challenged by pests and diseases plus the prolonged drought. She also operates a retail shop that sells general merchandise after attending to her gardens and when it is not the season for farming.

With 10 years in business, she is proud of her work, since it earns her income to look after her family.
