Karambi Tutungukye Group, Ibanda's story

Agriculture has, from time immemorial, been the backbone of Uganda’s economy. Different types of agricultural activity have given many Ugandan families an improved lease of life. This story is connected to K. Jesica from Kakinga, Ibanda district.

This married lady has subsisted on growing a variety of agricultural products for the last ten years. Though adverse weather conditions have constantly affected her gardens, Jesica has managed to consolidate the gains she has made. As a result, her family of four children has enjoyed the benefits. Principally, her children all now attend good institutions of learning.

In a month, Jesica reveals that she makes close to, or even more than, 200,000 Ugandan shillings from selling her farm produce, depending on the season. She is very upbeat that, with this loan, she will be in a position to improve on the mulching and gardening aspects of her farm and also increase the stock of animals on her farm which will help her increase her productivity.
