Kafuro_Fish Farmers Group's story

Hawa, age 52, has been selling maize, beans, and coffee for the past five years at the Bushenyi food market. She tells us that her friends encouraged her to engage this business. Hawa is not only honest but also hard-working, and plans to expand her business in future to cover a bigger market. She also engages in farming as a side business in order to bring her an additional income.

Hawa has many regular customers. They are residents and traders from nearby places. Hawa and her husband have five children, three of whom are still enrolled in school.

With her Kiva loan, Hawa plans to buy more beans, coffee, and maize to offer for sale. She is confident that this will increase her profits and improve her family's standard of living.
