Myanzi Tukolerewamu Women's Development Group-Mityana's story

5o year old Mary K. is affiliated with the Myanzi Tukolerewamu Women's Development Group- Mityana. It is now over 8 years since she began her Agro produce sales business in Myanzi. This happily married mother of 6 says she has been selling crops such as cassava, maize, beans, rice, cabbages and Pumpkins at a stall in Myanzi Food market. Mary says she started off as a subsistence farmer mostly growing crops for home consumption. Mary came to the realization that selling some of the crops she grew in her modest farming gardens would bring her some much needed income to sustain and provide better welfare for her family. Weekly this business generates her 30,000 shillings. Most of the clients to her business are wholesale sellers in and around Mityana Town. With this loan, Mary says she is going to improve her stall and also improve her farming gardens.
