Fortune Women's Group's story

Fortune women's Group is located on the outskirts of Ibanda Town. The group comprises only women whose major activity is agriculture. They fall into different categories, including divorcees, widows, single mothers and a few who are married. Juliet is the mother of 10 children and a member of Fortune Women's Group. She mainly survives on small-scale agriculture and goat rearing. She also sells charcoal. Her earnings are 200,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX). It’s through these activities that Juliet has been able to feed her 10 children, provide for their basic needs and send them to good schools. She has now applied for a loan of UGX 400,000 to buy goats, and will use the balance to rent some land to graze them on, since her own piece of land is small. Her main customers are neighbors and passers-by. The main challenge she faces is lack of enough land to rear her goats on. Despite all her challenges, Juliet is still a determined woman looking forward to changing her future and that of her children by giving them a good education.

In this group: Juliet, Rehema, Scovia, Marion, Caroline, Clemecia, Glorious, Justus
