A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy maize and beans, for planting and for sale.


Kihayura Twekambe Group's story

Paulina is 60 years old. She has eight children, including two who are still at school.She is a peasant farmer who grows mainly cassava, maize, beans and ground nuts for both home consumption and commercial purposes so as to raise money for paying school fees. Paulina was funded with a loan of ugx.200,000 UGX in the previous cycle which helped her to pay school fees for her children for that term and the balance was used for planting maize. Paulina has now approached Ugafode requesting a loan of ugx.300,000 UGX to help her buy seedlings of maize and ground nuts that she will plant during this rainy season. She intends to use the returns of the harvest to pay tuition for her children. Her dream is to see the children complete university, however her challenge is the limited capital used in agriculture which is not yielding enough to pay school fees and other household expenses. She is a hard working lady but is hindered by those challenges. (Paulina just like Yoweri acquired a loan during the previous cycle, however we have decided to interview Paulina not Yoweri this cycle for purposes of diversity since there are many members in the group.)

In this group: Paulina, Yoweri, Joseph, Vincent, Peter, Sperenta, Gaburiela, Malia, Rose
