Kiburara Tweheyo, Ibanda Group's story

Thirty-eight-year-old Stephen B. has subsisted on profits from his eight-year-old produce-selling business in the Kiburara market of Ibanda and those profits cater to all his family responsibilities. He is a married man with three children. What has through the years played havoc with his business are the constant unpredictable weather changes. In his business, he has mostly been relying on his down-to-earth demeanor to attract customers.

In a week, his business brings him profits that amount to 40,000 shillings. With this loan, he wants to buy more lucrative cash crops like coffee, maize and cassava that he will later resell.

In this group: Stephen, Phiona, John Baptist, Vian, Molly, Phabian, Naome, Maureen, Jane
