A loan of $2,625 helped a member to purchase high grade manure to improve the fertility of her gardens for farming.


Alinyikira Mbatuusa Group's story

32-year-old N. Safina is a sturdy, candid and enterprising woman who, friends say, has a streak of hard work in whatever she does. That virtue has been of paramount importance in her 11 years of experience in the teaching profession. Safina, who is happily married with 2 kids, derives her livelihood from teaching at schools in and around Mabada in the Mpigi district of Central Uganda. The commitment she has shown in practicing what she was taught at a training institution is exemplary, notwithstanding the low remuneration that teachers all over Uganda are faced with.

What has been of much help to Safina is the fact that she also does some farming as a side business. At present, she says she wants to invest more in her farming business as she reckons she will be able to earn from it if she improves her gardens with high grade manure. From her teaching job, she earns 270,000 shillings per month. Safina says with proceeds from the requested loan she is going to purchase high grade manure to improve the fertility of her gardens for farming.
