A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seedlings for the tea plantation.

Rugando Farmers & Traders B, Kihihi Group's story

As they say, determination is a key to success. T. Jovlet, a happily married mother of 5 children, ventured into tea growing in Nyamirambi, Kihihi, over 10 years ago. This was after realizing the readily available market in the area for a tea factory, that she developed an interest in growing and selling tea leaves alongside her banana plantation business. This enterprise has seen her earn 200,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis, which has greatly had an impact on her standard of living.

Her main drawback is the land being infertile with low yields, therefore, with this loan she will buy fertilizer and manure and further expand the tea plantation through buying more seedlings and doing it on a large scale. This will improve her yields, sales, and enable Jovlet to take care of her family's needs.
