Nseenya Zinnunula Omunaku Group's story

40 year old Emmanuel is now 20 years in his farming business in Lugazi. The happily married father of 8 says its been a worthwhile business venture due to the high demand for food in many parts of Lugazi which is usually dry and where many indigenous people are not known for farming. He grows and sells foods such as bananas, cassava, groundnuts, sorghum, beans and maize. He also runs a retail shop as a supplementary business.

He says his business generates him profits of shillings 500,000 per week. With this loan, Emmanuel says he is going to purchase better and higher grade manure for his farms.
