Rwentobo Tutungukye Group's story

Abigil, aged 39, is a resident of Rugando, a village in the Mbarara district. She dropped out of school after senior four and got married at the age of 16 years, because her parents could not manage school fees any more. She started banana farming with her husband for survival and also to care for their children. This business grew and helped them to sustain their family and support education for her young sisters. She later obtained a loan of ugx.1,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from UGAFODE which has helped them to increase her production and modernize her plantation. This motivated them to mobilize their fellow farmers to form a development group called Rwentobo Tutungukye. This group has also succeeded in other development projects, and they are requesting a loan of ugx.9,100,000 to help them increase their working capital for their different businesses. Abigil will use hers to buy organic fertilizers for her banana plantation.

In this group: Esther, Evarist, Abigil, Magret, Evas, Julius, Immaculate, Annet
