A loan of $4,650 helped a member the purchase of fertilizers for her farm and to also pay off the farm laborers.

Akutwala Ekiro Nakawuka-Mpigi Group's story

50-year-old S. Dezi belongs to the Akutwala Ekiro Nakawuka-Mpigi.

She has been selling bananas and other food produce for the last 25 years in Nakawuka-Mpigi. It is a profitable business given that many people buy food on a daily basis. What has played into her favor is the fact that she has a farm of her own where she harvests these foods.

She joined forces with her husband who was already into this business. In a month, she reckons she makes profits that add up to about $310. With this loan she hopes to buy more fertilizers for her farm and she also hopes to pay her laborers.

In this group: Dezi, Santos, Ronald, Annet, Sam, Vicent, Hasifa, Cissy, Dinah, Federesi, Joyce, Rose, Moses, Zzeridda*, Ritah, Edith, Margret, Edith, Annet, Judith, Harriet
