Buzaniro Women's Group A, Kihihi's story

There is a fascinating story behind determined M. Alfred who was not afraid of diversity when he ventured into the business world ten years ago. This hardworking, married father of four children began his produce shop, dealing in general food crops like beans, maize flour, groundnuts (peanuts), peas and many other items in Kibaya, Kihihi.

Through acquiring loans from micro-finance institutions, Alfred was able to start up this side business alongside his agriculture to help him bring more income into the family. With this loan Alfred will be able to purchase more stock and be able to improve his earnings as he looks forward to live a self-sustaining life.

In this group: Alfred, David, Boaz, Alfred, Loy, Eliphaz, Andrew, Peter, James, Samuel, Gideon, Sadress*
