A loan of $3,500 helped a member purchase fertilizer, mulches and other farm supplies.


Kanyantorogo Twekambe Women's, Kihihi Group's story

Hard-working and die-hard agriculturalist Edith K., age 49 years, has been maintaining a banana plantation and coffee plantation for more than ten years in Burema, Kihihi. This fetches her about $89 per month, though not enough to sustain her family of six children who are pursuing their education at higher institutions of learning.

She has persevered at keeping her enterprise growing. Her aim for taking up this loan is to enable her to buy mulches and fertilizers for her plantations and also to hire additional laborers. She is looking at an expansion plan and wanting to transport her products to bigger markets. This will help Edith increase productivity and also earn more revenue, allowing her to be able to live a more sustainable life.
