Gwali Mutala Women's Group, Mpigi's story

N. Eva is a 50-year-old alcohol trader in Mpigi. She has been her family’s breadwinner for the last ten years with most, if not all, of her income coming from this business. As a testament, all her six children have been able to get an education. She has done this without the support of any man.

Eva was prevailed upon by one of her friends to start this business after the friend realized that Eva was at her wit’s end. With a sense of determination she got started and at present she makes close to 80,000 shillings a month. She also does some subsistence farming to add to her income.

With this loan, Eva is upbeat that she will purchase more bananas for making her local banana-brew drink.
