Kuteesa Women's Group-Mpigi's story

Animal husbandry has been 35 year old N. Harriet’s business for the last 20 years. Her business is located in Ssazi-Mpigi. Harriet, who describes herself as highly ambitious, says she began this business with savings from her erstwhile farming business. This was after she came to terms with the fact that there was a ready market for cattle, goats and pigs within her operating area.

Harriet isa single mother with 3 kids. She says her brother has been at her beck and call in the running of her business all this while. She also ekes out profits from a small cash crop selling business. Harriet is also a teacher. In a week her profits total up to 150,000 shillings. With this loan Harriet, who belongs to Kuteesa women’s group- Mpigi, says she is going to purchase building materials for the school she says she is building in her locality.
