A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy plantains for resale.


Tukundane Group's story

Evelyn, a repeat client of Tukundane Group, is in her third cycle. She is married with six children, all are going to school. In addition, she cares for two dependents who are relatives. She takes care of all their needs.

Evelyn is taking the loan to buy plantains for sale to her clients. Since it's the festive season, there will be many customers buying plantains for the season which will increase her sales and income.

With the income, Evelyn will get money to buy some new clothes for her children. She will also save some money to pay school fees for the children's next academic year.

Evelyn's main challenges are price fluctuations and stiff competition in the market since she trades in an area where plantain-growing is a major economic activity. She is excited that she will make a big profit this season and thanks UGAFODE Microfinance Limited for partnering with her and coming to her aid in such a period when she needs money the most. Evelyn is very hard-working.
