A loan of $1,175 helped a member to improve on her garden.

Isunga Tweimukye Group's story

Berna (lady in picture standing on the extreme end of the front row wearing a blue outfit) is a 50-year-old widow with seven children, all of whom stay with her. After the death of her husband, she was left as the sole provider for her children. She started growing crops, both to provide food for them and to sell the surplus to raise money for looking after them.

Berna wants a loan of 200,000/= (two hundred thousand shillings) to improve on her garden and ultimately provide more food for her family. Her dream is to earn enough additional income to be able to educate her children and have a decent living environment for them. However, she faces the usual challenges of limited capital as well as the erratic heavy rains and dry spells in their area that always affect her crop.
