A loan of $350 helped a member to buy exotic pigs, feed, and medicine for piggery businesses.


Rose's Group's story

Rose’s group consists of five married women who on average are 35 years old, have four children, live in the same village, and are friends. All group members rear local chickens and pigs. They also grow food crops. Rose’s group members attained training on better pig rearing skills and they all belong to YICE self-help women groups in Mirembe village.

Rose (second from right) is the group leader and is 39 years old. She is married with four children, all of who attend school. Rose has been rearing pigs for the last two years, but she confessed that her pigs had a slow growth rate and she always lost them to disease and parasites.

After acquiring skills on better pig rearing practices, Rose plans to expand her project and buy an exotic male pig as a step towards rearing exotic, fast-growing pigs.

She is therefore applying for this loan to buy an exotic pig, feed, and medicine.

Rose has a dream of establishing a big piggery business and buying cows to produce milk for her children and family.

In this group: Rose, Sefoloza, Teopista, Nakalema, Teopista
