Kamukamu Women's Group - Kyenjojo's story

Hardworking Resty S. is a married mother of five children. She has been running a tea-growing business in Kitoma, Kyenjojo, for more than 25 years. It all began when she bought a plantation garden of tea leaves and since then, she has been picking green tea leaves and selling them to the Mabale tea factory. She does this alongside sales from fresh foods like cassava and sweet potatoes. She makes 30,000 Ugandan shillings in a week.

For now, she is held back by poor yields and therefore, she is seeking a loan that will help her buy fertilizers for her to improve the quality of her land and her yields. This will, in the long run, help her get more sales revenue out of selling her tea leaves and she says she will be able to pay tuition fees for her university-going children. Kamukamu is the group she belongs to.
