A loan of $2,400 helped a member to purchase pestcides and other farm tools.

Nyaruhanda Twimukye, Ibanda Group's story

K. Wily, aged 45, is hardworking and dedicated to his farming business where he deals in a variety of farm aspects that include a banana plantation enterprise and animal rearing. He has been doing this for over fifteen years and it has earned him a profit of 200,000 Ugandan shillings monthly that has helped in providing basic needs for his children and family as well as business expansion.

This loan will be of great value for Wily to purchase farm tools like hoes, fertilizer and to modernize his plantation to improve on his banana crop (which is commonly used by customers for making a local dish). He will also be able to buy pesticides for the pests and diseases which are a great threat to his business products. This will increase his sales revenue and enable him to pay his daily bills including his children’s school bills.

Wily belongs to a group of members who hold each other accountable and insure one another in paying back the loan.
