Tulwanirewamu Community Group 1-Kampala's story

S. Hellen, 50, is now seven years into her farming business in Naluvule-Kampala. She makes 252,000 shillings a month in profit. She also runs a retail shop.

The combined profits from her two businesses helps her provide better for her kids. She credits her husband for giving her some of the start-up capital back then when she was more inclined to small-scale subsistence agriculture.

With this loan, Hellen, who belongs to Tulwanirewamu group-Kampala and who is also a mother of eight, says she is going to buy more stock for her retail enterprise and she also expects to improve her farming business with manure purchases.
