Akutwala Ekiro Development Group-Mityana's story

Peragia K. rises as early as the larks. With the kind of business she undertakes -- food sales -- this is extremely invaluable, as clients normally prefer to purchase foods at the crack of dawn. Welcome to the world of this 45-year-old, where it is survival of the fittest in a cutthroat business and the ones with better wits can gain an advantage over those who are not in touch with the reality of this kind of business.

Subsistence farming was her first major preoccupation. Though she still holds it in high value, she says selling the crops that she harvests is a better and worthwhile business proposition. Her business accrues 45,000 shillings weekly. With this loan, she wants to buy in bulk more cash crops for resale. She belongs to the Akutwala Ekiro Group-Mityana.
