A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy organic manure.

Isunga Tweimukye Group's story

Berna is a 50-year-old widow with 7 children who stay with her. After the death of her husband, she started a small bar in her village to raise money to look after the family. She also practices agriculture on a smaller scale to address her family’s needs and to sell the surplus.

Berna wants a loan of 200,000 to buy organic manure to spread into her banana plantation. She hopes that with the manure the quality of her plantation will improve as well as her productivity and sales. This, in turn, will increase her income which will enable her to educate her children and to have a decent living environment for the family. However, she is challenged by the limited capital as well as the bad weather that always affects agriculture.
