Nambale Mixed Group-Mityana's story

Laurencia M. is 43 years old and makes a living selling food from a stand in a business center in the Mityana district of her town. Mostly she sells bananas, cassavas and sweet potatoes. She went into this line of business 12 years ago after being persuaded by a friend to open her stand. Before that, she was a full-time mother who was raising nine cheerful children. She used to work occasionally as a farmer but is doing better in her new field because of her diligence and careful planning. She earns about 20,000 shillings a week as profit and will use her portion of this group loan to buy more food to sell, including beans, rice, maize flour and peas.
