Dufatanye Gasiza Group's story

Solange is 32 years old and has five children between the ages of four months and 12 years. Three of her children attend school and she has two other dependents in her care.

Solange is on her second loan cycle, the first having been properly repaid. With this loan, she is going to purchase 200kg of potato seeds, chemical fertilizers, and will pay labor costs. A poor harvest is the only possible difficulty Solange foresees, which could mean she might have trouble repaying her loan. Her strategy is to modernize her farming in compliance with agriculturalist recommendations.

Solange's ambition is the be the largest potato distributor in the area. For her family, her goal is to ensure their well-being.
