A loan of $400 helped to buy roofing materials for her house.

Janet's story

Jane, a 35-year-old married mother of one, lives in Kyotera with her husband and two step children. A fish monger since 1996, Jane managed to acquire several plots of land in Kyotera and now has some rental housing in Kinankole zone that provides a secondary source of income for her family.

Jane began selling fish because Kyotera is located near the shore of Lake Kijjanabalora, which has high quality tilapia fish. She acquired from her grandfather knowledge of storage, drying, and maintaining fish which she applies in her business. She sells her products to individuals from Kyotera and traders who take them to Kampala.

Jane, who describes herself as an honourable, hardworking, honest, and God-fearing person, is requesting this loan to purchase roofing materials for her residential house.

One of her dreams is to build several rental houses in Kyotera, and she hopes to be one of the people with the largest estates in town in the near future. She has not yet achieved her goals due to fish price fluctuations which sometimes lead to losses since she cannot preserve all of her products for a long period of time.
