A loan of $3,025 helped a member to purchase high grade manure for her farm.

Kyegwisa Bakyara Twimukye Group's story

At her food stall, 32 year-old Ovia sells bananas, sweet potatoes, maize, Irish potatoes and yams. The odds to succeed in her type of business in Western Uganda are ten to one. These odds go into overdrive when one practices farming. In a broad sense that means being able to easily harvest what one plants and, at length, being able to sell the produce.
Food businesses are all the rage in most cities in the West of Uganda. Of late, most of these food sales entrepreneurs have been driving roaring trades selling their foods to the more lucrative food markets in Central Uganda. Many people are partial to bananas and Irish potatoes from Western Uganda..

Ovia farms her land in Ibanda. She says that her monthly gross sales revenue totals to Uganda shillings 120,000.

Going by accounts from Pearl, this is the 5th time, Ovia's group is receiving a loan, and the repayment record has been good enough.
Ovia says this loan will help her purchase high grade manure for her farms.
