A loan of $2,150 helped a member to purchase maize to sell.


Kyosiga Kyokungura Group's story

Betty is 45 years old and a member of the Kyosiga Kyo’kungura group. She is a widow whose husband passed on and left her with four children. All of them go to school.

Betty collects maize from different villages and brings it to the milling machine. She started this job in 2002 when her husband had passed away to support her family since she was the bread winner. Betty’s dream is to see her children successfully finish school and have a bright future so that they can help her out during her old age.

Her major challenge is lack of enough capital which slows down the growth of her business. Betty is very hard working, social, and honest. She will use the loan to purchase more maize and to set up a store where she can always store her produce and be able to have a constant supply. The loan will allow her to be able to earn a consistent and stable income to support her family and educate her children up to higher institutions of learning.
