A loan of $1,525 helped a member to purchase more maize and beans seeds to grow.


Nyabiherere Bakyara Tutungukye Group's story

Nine years of unwavering resolve and efficacy have brought dividends to 37-year-old Benon's produce sales business in Ibanda. The sturdy father of five speaks glowingly of how he has been able to bring a new lease of life to his family. Benon is invariably firm in purpose. Notwithstanding the hardships he has faced, he has not wavered.

Benon plies his trade in one of the biggest food markets in Ibanda. What has helped his cause is the fact that he is a farmer. On his farms, he grows and harvests crops such as maize, rice, bananas and yams. At length, these are the crops he sells. Weekly his business's gross sales income is to the tune of Uganda shillings 80,000.

He says he intends to use this Kiva loan to purchase more maize and bean seeds to grow.
