A loan of $4,125 helped a member to purchase more fruits and vegetable seeds to grow on her farm.


Bwavumpologoma Women' Group-Buikwe's story

Prisca has been working assiduously to obtain a firm footing for her green fruits and vegetables sales business over the past 20 years in Lugazi. A firm footing, being that this business is seasonal and one involved in it has to compete with other green fruit and vegetable traders. Prisca's courage and strong-willed determination have seen her survive in this tough business. Previously this congenial and warm-hearted married mother of seven had nothing she was doing to make ends meet. She was mostly engaged in a daily trivial round involving house chores. The fact that Prisca is a farmer who grows fruits and vegetables on her farm plays to her advantage. Prisca says her husband helps her out with her business. Weekly, this business makes her sales profits totaling up to Ugandan shillings 40,000, and monthly, her profits total up to Ugandan shillings 120,000. With this Kiva loan, she says she is going to purchase more fruits and vegetable seeds to grow on her farm.
