Runyinya Kigugu Tukwatanis Group's story

Aidah is a Ugandan citizen aged 48 years. She is married and has five children, and she lives in Runyinya – Kinombe, Rukungiri District. She does ordinary jobs as an agriculturalist, including a pig-raising project, which she does with her husband in order to take care of their family. Aidah and her husband work hand-in-hand to make sure that their piggery project is sustainable. As of now, they have over 50 pigs and piglets, inclusive.

Aidah and her husband sought financial assistance from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) - Rukungiri Branch, Aidah becoming a member of a borrowing group called Runyinya Kigugu Tukwatanis Group. She will use her share of this loan for the piggery project, in the form of hiring labour and buying feed, among other uses.

She is very grateful for the assistance advanced to her, in the form of financing, on different occasions by UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI), and she hopes they continue doing the same.
