A loan of $3,025 helped a member to purchase fertilizers, mulches and labor for her plantation.


Bukiro Women's Group, Ntungamo's story

M. Hellen, aged 61, is a hardworking and die-hard agriculturalist who has been maintaining a banana, cattle and coffee plantation for more than 41 years in her home area of Kabukokyero. This fetches her 400,000 UGX per month from milk and banana sales though not enough to sustain her family of 11 children as some are still students at higher institutions of learning.

Hellen has persevered to keep her business enterprise growing. Her aim in taking up this loan is to buy mulches and fertilizer for her plantation and employ additional laborers as she plans to expand and transport her products to bigger markets. This will help her increase productivity, earn more revenue, and live a more sustaining life.
