Kinyarwanda Kweteranahamwe Group's story

Justus is married and has three children, one of whom goes to school. He is a peasant farmer, growing pigs, poultry and crops. Justus went into the farming business five years ago, as a source of income to look after his family plus raising food for home consumption. He has applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 (five hundred thousand Ugandan shillings) through the group, to expand on his farming projects. Justus’s dream is to buy more land to expand his farm and also to buy a motorcycle to ease his transport. His main challenges include limited capital, poor transport to get his goods to market, and market price fluctuations for agricultural products. He thanks the group members for standing there for each other and UGAFODE Microfinance for trusting them with the money, especially in an area where they are foreigners. They hope the partnership will persist.
