Bwanda Bakyala Kwetungura Group's story

Boaz is 37 years old, married and is a Ugandan citizen who lives in Bwanda, Buhunga, Rukungiri District. He is an agriculturalist who grows tomatoes in the same area where he lives. He has two children' one is 6 months old and the other is 2 years old; therefore, none of them is in school.

Boaz’s current business is an inheritance from his father, who is now 90. His father lives with him and has outgrown the age of digging. The son therefore decided to continue with the business to earn income to take care of his family and his aged father, who needs intensive care that suits his old age.

Boaz therefore applied for a group loan with Bwanda Bakyara Kwetungura Group in order to improve his agricultural business to a standard that can match his requirements through mulching and manuring the tomatoes. The main challenge he is facing now is weather; there is a lot of sunshine which necessitates him to water the tomatoes, thus making it more expensive for him to meet his target of being the chief supplier of Rukungiri district by the end of the year.
