A loan of $4,625 helped a member to purchase mulches for the plantation.

Ntungamo Tukore Twetungure A, Kihihi Group's story

Hard working, dependable and die-hard agriculturalist Alice K., 53, has been maintaining a banana plantation alongside her teaching profession for more than 10 years in her home area of Kyabuyorwe, Kihihi. She fetches an average amount of 200,000 Ugandan shillings per month from banana sales, though not enough to sustain her extended family.

Alice has persevered to keep the enterprise growing, and her aim for taking up this loan is to enable her to buy mulches and manure for the plantation as she looks at an expansion plan for transporting her products to bigger markets. This will help her increase productivity as well as earn more revenue, live a more sustaining life and educate all her children.
