A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy seedlings for planting and matooke (steamed green bananas) for resale.


Kakiika Twetungure Group's story

Rose is a member of the Kakiika Group and a resident of Kakiika, Kajara, Ntungamo. She is a widow with five children, all of whom attended school but later dropped out due to lack of tuition.

Rose is now a farmer engaged in the buying and selling of matooke (steamed green bananas). She also grows beans, maize and potatoes in order to maintain her household. At times, she sells her harvest when she has surplus in order to earn additional income.

Rose now requests a loan to buy seedlings for planting and matooke (steamed green bananas) for resale. This will give her the ability to meet her family's basic needs. She is confident that this loan will help her walk a few miles down the path toward her dream of being liberated from poverty.
