Butenga Parents Group's story

Harriet is a widow with four children, all in secondary school, in addition to a dependant who is an orphan. She is 35 years old and lives in Kikunyu Zone, Mpigi District, running a grocery. She earns her income from the grocery and farming, which she uses to take care of her family's needs and to pay school fees for her children. Harriet’s major challenges are changes in market prices, competition and diseases that affect the crops.

Harriet intends to use the borrowed money to rent a piece of land on which she will grow onions to sell to increase her income. Her customers mainly include the local community and passersby. Despite the challenges, Harriet envisions a bright future through agriculture. Her dream is to build a decent house for her family and some rentals that will fetch income when her children join university.
