Lwensinga Tusakimu Group's story

Goret is a widow aged 50 years. She has been in the group since 2006; she joined the male-dominated group so that they could help her learn how to work hard and be innovative, especially having been widowed at a relatively young age. She needed to work hard to be able to meet her family demands.

Goret is a typical farmer. She grows beans, maize and millet. She has applied for shillings 300,000 which she will use to buy good quality seedlings of maize and beans for planting during the rainy season in September. She will use the profits after sales to pay school fees and buy her other household necessities. Goret is determined not to be left behind in this fast developing economy. Goret is standing at the front row on the left dressed in a pink attire.

In this group: Surat, Lazaro, Edson, Janet, Andrew, Zefania, Henry, Goreti, Goret, Godfrey, Richard, John Bosco
