A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy seeds and hire a labourer for planting them.

Kisa Kya Mukama Wamala Group's story

Mary is a 56-year-old widow living in rural Wakiso, around 30 kilometres away from the city. She is a farmer who fends for her family and pays the tuition of her children. Mary is so hard working that she has even managed to build a permanent house for her children. She recently bought plastic chairs that are rented for small functions with the help of the loan from UGAFODE the previous cycle. She hopes to buy many more chairs so that she can earn more from them.

She wants the loan to buy maize seeds and hire labourers for planting them during this time when it is raining. She encourages fellow women to be innovative and not to under look their potential because all things are possible. Phillip, another group member, makes mats out of papyrus. His main challenge is the cold weather which prevents them from drying and in turn produces poor quality mats. He hopes to diversify to agriculture if he gets funds. The group members are grateful for the partnership UGAFODE has developed with them.

In this group: Lovinsa, Justine, Pauline, Phillip, Mary, Margret, Fausta, Eva, Grace, Margret, Judith
