A loan of $3,000 helped a member to purchase high grade manure for his banana farms.


Kihanga Women's Group's story

44 year old Onesmus has been transacting his banana sales trade in Ntungamo for 30 years now. The fact that this happily married father of 7 is a farmer has been a place of advantage. His advantage is that most of the bananas he sells, are from his own farming efforts. His business longevity has not come easily. Like any other business person, has had to weather many financial storms during some seasons.

Being the philosophical and hard working gentleman that he is, Onesmus has taken most of the challenges in his business in his stride. This, in a way, has been his magic formula for success. Weekly, he says his sales profits total 130,000 shillings. He says with this Kiva loan he is going to purchase high grade manure for his banana farms.
