A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase tree farm inputs such as eucalyptus seedlings and fertilizer, as well as to pay for technical training and maintenance support.


Mwanajuma's Group's story

Mwanajuma is a 57-year-old mother of nine. To earn income for her family, she sells uniforms to local schools but faces the challenge of customer inconsistency. Mwanajuma is also a volunteer community health worker. She is joining the KOMAZA microforestry program because, as she says, "I have some land and I feel I want to do what KOMAZA is doing and be a part of KOMAZA in planting trees." With the profits from her tree farm, Mwanajuma plans to build a good house for her family, install electricity and piped water, and build a water storage tank. Her favorite part of the KOMAZA microforestry program is "seeing from my neighbors that the trees are doing well and learning how to plant trees." Also pictured with the group of three is Kuvuna, who is a cosigner for Nyevu's tree farm.

In this group: Mwanajuma, Katana, Nyevu
