A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy a piece of land.

Tukolere Wamu Farmers Group's story

This group is comprised of men and women who are typical farmers located outside the city on route to the western part of the country. Rovinsa, a divorcee, joined the group because she could not get far on her own and therefore needed external help in the form of a loan. After the divorce, the husband neglected her and the children whom she has to single handedly provide for all their needs.

Rovinsa makes bricks to supplement her meager income. Her main challenges are unpredictable weather changes and an unstable market. She will use part of the loan to buy a piece of land to enlarge the farming area and the remaining balance to clear tuition arrears for her children.

To be able to fend for seven children and a dependent takes hard work and determination, which Rovinsa has totally embraced and so have all the group members.

In this group: Dan, Deus, Medi, Rovinsa, Gerald, Justine, Faridah, Robinah, Betty, Julian, Juliet, Halimah, Hadija, Collin
