Mary

Uganda
Masaka, Uganda / Farming

A loan of $325 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that she may provide vital farming information to her community.


Mary's story

Mary is 30 years old. She is married and has three children. She and her husband earn their income primarily through farming. They grow rice, maize, cassava, beans and coffee. They keep cows and pigs. Mary and her husband also earn money by selling charcoal and bricks.

Mary looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW). As a CKW, she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Mary will invest in her cattle-rearing business. Her biggest dream in life is to have a wonderful home.
