Igali Tulibamwe Group's story

For 10 years, Potania has been growing Irish potatoes despite challenges in pests and diseases, which limit his profits due to the high cost of pesticides. He started by planting Irish potatoes on a small scale of around one acre. He has accumulated enough capital to buy more land, which he is now cultivating. Potania is a member of a group where each member promises to acquire a loan.
